This subject introduces students to hospital pharmacy, the policies and standards underpinning clinical pharmacy and the scope of clinical services and specialist pharmacist roles. The concept of pharmaceutical care will be explored and patient counselling will be introduced. Students will have the opportunity to contextualise this knowledge in an observational placement. To further situate the student in the clinical environment, students will be familiarised with basic haematology, the interpretation of laboratory values, as well as therapeutic drug monitoring. Student understanding of marketing in pharmacy practice will be developed including the principles and influencing factors of consumer behaviour, thus informing the provision of quality health care. Student knowledge in pharmaceutics will be further developed in the consideration of liquid and modified release dosage forms. Students will continue to develop their knowledge and skills in extemporaneous dispensing, carrying out more advanced calculations and preparing more complex pharmaceutical products.
