Professional Practice - PHAR5727

Year - 2018

This unit of study consolidates previous units from the entire Master of Pharmacy curriculum through the presentation and solving of clinical and ethical problems. It has a focus on knowledge application in a simulated pharmacy workplace and includes professional services such as disease state management eg. asthma and diabetes, medication reviews, CYP screening, smoking cessation therapy and opioid replacement therapy. Role-plays will be used to develop students' communication skills for interaction between pharmacists and their clients (patients, doctors, other health professionals). The unit consists of lectures, on-line learning and simulated case-based competency assessment and learning.
