Summary

Develop your clinical practice further on a programme that combines workplace-based learning with academic studies and is mapped to professional development frameworks.

MSc Clinical Pharmacy for Secondary and Tertiary Care (PgCert, PgDip) allows you to develop your practice as a clinical pharmacist and is mapped to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s (RPS) Foundation Pharmacy Framework. The programme caters for pharmacists employed in secondary or tertiary care settings and whilst it is primarily tailored for pharmacists in the early stages of their career, pharmacists at any stage of their career can apply. Highlights of this programme include:

  • Use of blended learning, which combines workplace-based learning, self-directed study and university-based study sessions. This approach allows integration of theory and practice and a degree of flexibility since students can align studying the online learning materials with their current rotations
  • Interactive and stimulating workshops designed and delivered by experienced and specialist practising pharmacists
  • Use of workplace-based learning and regular formative feedback to build on the knowledge, skills, behaviours and experiences gained during your undergraduate and pre-registration years
  • The option of completing an Independent Prescribing Pathway (accredited by the GPhC) during the second year of the programme
  • Alignment with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s (RPS) Foundation Pharmacy Framework
  • Benefit from over 25 years’ experience in providing clinical pharmacy training

This programme will enhance your knowledge of therapeutics, powers of communication, critical thinking and problems solving skills. By promoting an understanding of the inter-disciplinary nature of healthcare, your appreciation of the problems encountered by other healthcare professionals will grow. The programme encourages a rigorous scientific approach to clinical pharmaceutical problems and the need to develop logical arguments, to enable you to optimise medicines for patients with complex problems and multiple co-morbidities. You will be able to promote and assess clinical pharmacy services and make evidence-based recommendations to benefit both your patients and place of work.

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) accredited LJMU as a Foundation School (in the first wave) in June 2015. As an accredited RPS Foundation School, LJMU works in partnership with employers to provide quality workplace education and training infrastructures, as well as training for practice-based tutors.
