Except with the approval of the Head of School/Associate Dean, all subjects in a chain must be studied in consecutive teaching periods.
Part of Subject Chain: PC3204, PC3205. This subject will further develop the students understanding of aspects of professional pharmacy practice including communication, counselling skills, dispensing, legal and ethical issues and professional standards. An emphasis will be placed on how this applies to cross cultural communication, rural and remote practice and the extended role of other health professionals in these communities. The roles of relevant professional pharmacy organisations and bodies and their relevance to contemporary pharmacy practice will be discussed. The student will also extend their knowledge and understanding of the pharmaceutics of solid pharmaceutical formulations and dosage forms. In addition the subject will provide supervised clinical pharmacy placement with flexible support from the University to integrate and develop previously learnt material with new observational and practical clinical training. The placement will be either rural or urban (hospital, community or industry) at an advanced level and will enable the student to apply, develop, analyse and integrate the theories, principles and practice of pharmacy in a variety of settings.
