Hello everyone - we are very excited to be hosting the inaugural MyDispense two day symposium at the Monash University Centre in Prato, Italy on 18 & 18 July 2016. There is no cost to attend the symposium, but we will have an online registration form available soon so we can confirm numbers.
If we are to increase academic capacity, particularly in developing countries, we need to increase the number of people with advanced qualifications. Presently, most people seeking to obtain higher degrees need to travel to another country.
Attendees were asked to discuss key themes in small like minded groups (working with similar cohorts of learners) then reported back--the threads below contain a summary of the points raised
Development of Needs-based Competency Framework for Pharmacy Undergraduates - By: Vilius Savickas on 8 Jul 2015 - 1:47am
A number of competency frameworks are available in different countries worldwide for the development of postgraduate pharmacy professionals to ensure they are 'fit for purpose'.
International Rotational Scheme for Pharmacists - By: Vilius Savickas on 8 Jul 2015 - 1:37am
This already exists in one form or another, e.g. through humanitarian projects or FIP, however I think it would be great to put something more solid in place
Yesterday, presenter Rolee Pathak mentioned the integration of classic US gameshows into the 4th year student review course at Rutgers University in New Jersey USA.
Ok, I posed this question in the earlier workshop by Catherine and Kirstie. What is the difference between reflecting ON practice and reflecting YOUR practice and what balance should this take?
Embedding good leadership within the current workforce? - By: Michael Twigg on 6 Jul 2015 - 6:04pm
How do we embed good leadership in current pharmacists who have not received any leadership training? How do we ensure they are not passing poor examples of leadership and mentoring to the next generation of pharmacists?
When is it appropriate to start teaching leadership? - By: Michael Twigg on 6 Jul 2015 - 6:01pm
Just thought I would put this one out there: when is it appropriate to start teaching and embedding leadership and mentoring within pharmacy students and pharmacists?
For those pharmacy schools that integrate reflective practice activities into curriculum, what type of assessment strategies that have been utilised? Formative or summative assessment?
I am really interested in the reliability of assessing reflective practices. What strategies have other academics utilised as assessment tools?
Thanks, Tina, for a good seeding session to introduce this discussion group today. Lots of ideas for people to think and comment about.
Hi everyone, welcome to the Monash Pharmacy Education Symposium 2015. It's going to be a jam packed couple of days and I'm looking forward to meeting you all, and to your input!
Video utilisation for enhancing communication skills - By: Cherie Tsingos on 1 Jul 2015 - 1:29pm
Many health professional courses utilise videos as a tool to enhance communication skills. However, this process usually involves watching others (simulated patients, health professionals) communicate or counsel patients, rather than watching themselves.
