Pharmacy Practice MSc

Course description:

This course is open to UK-registered pharmacists with patient-facing roles across all sectors of practice. Developed in partnership with workplaces across the region, a team of academic and practice experts have crafted this course to support pharmacists to deliver excellent person-centred care and to meet the challenges of a rapidly advancing profession. Mapped to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Post-Registration Foundation Framework, this MSc provides opportunity to gather portfolio evidence if you are working towards RPS credentialing.

In your first year, you will develop your personal, professional and clinical skills needed for a range of long-term conditions. This offers you the foundation needed to deliver safe and effective patient care, coupled with the communication, educational and professional skills needed to deliver this with optimal efficacy.

In the second year, you will focus on delivering high-quality care across a range of specialist conditions, and on service improvement in practice. You will have a choice of optional modules including independent prescribing, allowing you to tailor your learning.

The final year is focused on developing your research skills, providing opportunity for research methods training before going on to apply this knowledge to a dissertation project. You'll apply the principles of medicines optimisation through critical evaluation of both national guidance and the primary evidence underpinning this. Themes around understanding medicines use from the patients’ perspective - ensuring medicines use is evidence-based and as safe as possible - run throughout the course.

You will work in partnership with academics and work-based educational supervisors. This practice-based approach supports authentic assessment, based directly on your experiences of practice. You will undertake learning needs analyses across the duration of the course to inform development of individualised learning plans.

The School of Healthcare is part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health, a centre of excellence in the provision of high quality education and research which develops knowledge that informs and improves practice.

You can also study this subject at Postgraduate Diploma level.
