The University of Bradford evaluation:

Description

This programme has been designed to provide education and training for early career pharmacists in any patient-facing sector, to develop their knowledge and skills whilst working in practice.

The NHS is currently experiencing an unprecedented demand for services, with increasing recognition of the need to provide personalised and seamless care. Pharmacists in every sector are in a position to play a key role in addressing these challenges. This programme is therefore mapped to both the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Foundation Pharmacy Framework (FPF) and the NHS Long Term Plan, enabling collaboration with all health professionals to ensure that the best quality of care can be delivered to the local population.

This programme is suitable for pharmacists registered and practising in the UK, who are working at Foundation Level (newly qualified or in their first 1-2 years of practice).

Students will have:

the ability to solve complex problems and justify their decisions
the confidence and ability to communicate effectively with patients and healthcare professionals
the ability to reflect on their practice to inform their professional development
the confidence and ability to work effectively and proactively across healthcare organisations to improve the quality of person-centred care, minimise risk, optimise safety and reduce health inequalities
an understanding of the priorities of the NHS as reflected in the NHS Long Term Plan. This includes understanding the role of a pharmacist across multiple sectors, person-centred care and treatment and prevention of ill health
This is a part-time blended learning programme. The programme is delivered as a mixture of study days at the University of Bradford, webinars and self-directed learning.

The course is not suitable for international students, although international students who are registered with the GPhC and working in the UK are able to apply.

Please note that the support of your employer is normally required to complete this programme as assessments include work-based assessments.

For advice on whether the Foundation is appropriate for you, or if you do not have the support of your employer, please contact the programme leader Sandra Martin.
