Advanced Professional Practice (Pharmacy)
The Pharmacy pathway is compatible with the emerging agenda for advanced and specialist practice within the pharmacy profession; pharmacists who follow this pathway incorporate the advanced and consultant level competency framework (ACLF) or related frameworks if relevant (eg pharmacist with special interest) within their advanced professional practice award and be able to demonstrate competency, by completing a portfolio of evidence throughout the programme, in all 6 competency clusters of the framework (expert professional practice; building relationships; leadership; management; education, training and development; research and evaluation).
Particularly suitable for practitioners who have been registered for at least 3 years, but this is at the discretion of the programmer manager and discussion with individual applicants.
Year 1 (Certificate Year); advanced practice development (continuous module during years 1 and 2); competency frameworks for the advanced practitioner; building working relationships for the advanced practitioner. Year 2 (Diploma Year): researching and evaluating your practice; education theory and practice for health professionals; business and financial management. Year 3 (Master's year): advanced practice development; independent learning project.
Reflective portfolio to record and reflect on learning related to the short course/module and the individual�s professional practice.
