Credit points: 15

Subject outline

The ability to bring together available resources and to identify relevant information is a key skill for clinical pharmacists to develop. This final year subject offers you the opportunity to bring together knowledge amassed throughout the undergraduate degree and apply it to a series of real-world problems. Answers may not be explicitly in guidelines, so you will be required to conduct your own research, appraise and apply research findings, justify your decisions, and communicate those decisions in language accessible to both patients and prescribers.
