PRACTICE AND ADVANCED COUNSELLING (PATIENT CENTERED CARE)

PHA4PAC

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Many factors in a person's life can affect their health and the way they approach their healthcare. An important element of pharmaceutical care is to take these factors and the person's level of health literacy into account when dealing with them as a patient. This requires pharmacists to change their approach to a patient accordingly. Students will learn about heath literacy, what factors can affect health and health care, global influences on healthcare and the communication skills to respond appropriately. Healthcare provisions will be examined in the local and global context with skills developed around health, emotional and cultural literacy to enable students to understand the range of sociological issues that may be encountered when practicing as a pharmacist. Topics covered include health and emotional literacy, conflict, ethics, privacy and consent, mental health, abuse, addiction, loss and grief, sexuality, global healthcare perspectives and cultural and religious diversity.
