Abstract

Focal points

New integrated 5-year undergraduate MPharm programmes are on the horizon and use of clinical simulation in UK pharmacy education is an emerging theme1.
Pharmacist roles are evolving; such as the extension to pharmacists' clinical skills in managing long-term conditions called for by the Royal College of General Practice (RCGP) and Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS).

The study found patient focussed simulation is an appropriate way of learning communication skills (100%) of respondents and drug counselling (99%) of respondents.

93% of respondents stated the simulation workshop were a more useful way of learning compared to lectures.
