Unit of study_

Clinical Residency 1 - PHAR5505

Year - 2018

The overall objective of the Unit of Study is to complement Units of Study already undertaken in on-campus course work, and to develop experience in practice and knowledge of professional settings. This Unit of Study is focussed on professional practice settings, and is normally conducted in community pharmacies, although may include some hospital pharmacy placements (as available) - where the student will observe, and participate in - professional practice. A portfolio of activities designed for the practice setting is a guide to assist self-directed learning. The activities also are triggers for students to appreciate and develop their knowledge of the Professional Competencies Framework for pharmacists. Students are prompted to be reflective in their learning through the experiential learning program and will write a reflective commentary during the placement for assessment - to be included in the portfolio.

Practical experience

Preceptor Evaluation (50%), Portfolio including reflective diary (50%). All assessment tasks must be completed. Satisfactory performance in all areas of this unit of study is required.
