This subject will further develop student understanding of pharmacy practice and counselling, including legal and ethical issues, clinical and extemporaneous dispensing and communication skills. Students will also become familiar with principles of pharmacoeconomics and drug stability, and be introduced to the process of clinical trials. Students will also complete 80 hours of supervised clinical pharmacy placements in hospital or community pharmacy or industry in both urban and rural settings. Finally, the student will work in small, self-directed groups towards the development and completion of a project relevant to a contemporary pharmacy practice issue. Students will demonstrate skills in leadership, planning and team work in order to plan and undertake project activities, the initial phase of which will be a joint review of the issue, culminating in the production of an academic literature review which will be presented in written and oral formats
