This subject will explore advanced pharmacy practice including new and expanded roles for pharmacists in various care settings as well as various aspects of clinical pharmaceutics. Students will be introduced to the theory and practice standards underpinning pharmacy prescribing, home medicines reviews (HMR) and pharmacists in general practice (GP) clinics. At this stage, it is expected that students will have acquired sufficient knowledge to fully appreciate the significance of bringing a new drug candidate to market, allowing for the process of drug development to be explored in depth. Students will complete their independent research and will prepare a written summary of their research project and findings in the form of a research paper suitable for publication in an appropriate academic journal. Students will also deliver an oral presentation summarising their research, following which they will be required to respond to examiners' questions regarding their project design, findings and implications.
