Pharmacy Skills in Practice 2 integrates aspects of drug delivery and formulation with Pharmacy Practice, which relates to the role of the pharmacist in optimising the use of medicines and improving health outcomes. Students develop their dispensing process as pharmacists with advanced extemporaneous dispensing issues and calculations. Students are introduced to professional problem solving and decision making appropriate to the patient. There is a focus on patient-centred care with patient counselling concepts and application of communication skills in clinical scenarios. This patient-centred care is extended to the study of over-the-counter (OTC) medications and chronic disease state management. Some legal and ethical aspects of dispensing and related pharmacy practice are covered.
