This subject will further expand and deepen the student knowledge of aspects of pharmacy practice introduced in PC3302 and PC3312. The topics of legal and ethical issues, clinical dispensing and communication skills and drug stability will be advanced and expanded, and the pharmaceutics of endocrine dosage forms will be explored. Areas of focus for dispensing will include the management of refugee health and cultural sensitivity. Students will also undertake an interdisciplinary patient history-taking exercise in the community. An additional major area of focus for this subject will be in pharmacy management. Students will again undertake supervised clinical pharmacy placement, which may be either rural or urban in a variety of settings, including hospital, community or industry. In the research component of the subject, students will continue to develop their research skills as they are guided in the preparation of a research proposal and an ethics application for their research project.
|As this is a core level 3 subject in the BPharm(Hons)/MPharm pathway, students will be expected to have completed all core level 1 and 2 subjects.|
