1 PG Certificate / PG Diploma / MSc in Clinical Pharmacy Programme Information September 2014 Entry School of Pharmacy Queen s University Belfast

2 Queen s University Belfast - Clinical Pharmacy programme Distance learning at the School of Pharmacy, QUB The School of Pharmacy s Distance Learning Centre has been providing high quality postgraduate programmes for pharmacists since Currently, the Centre provides MSc programmes in both clinical and community pharmacy in a part- time, distance learning format. The distance learning format allows students to remain in employment throughout their studies and involves a blend of home study and work- based learning activities. This format has been proven to be popular with students as it allows them to arrange their studies to suit their lifestyle and they can incorporate many of the learning activities into their normal work routine. In addition, the format is popular with employers as members of staff are not required to leave the workplace to attend lectures or study days at any stage. Why should you choose QUB? The QUB School of Pharmacy was named as the top overall Pharmacy School in the UK by the 'Sunday Times University Guide 2013', and is consistently rated among the top Schools of Pharmacy in the UK. We have been providing distance learning courses for pharmacists for over 20 years and during this time we have developed expertise in authoring and delivering distance learning materials. This is a never- ending process - we review our courses annually and have embraced opportunities provided by the Internet for course delivery and student support. In addition, the QUB School of Pharmacy was awarded the maximum score of 24 points by a visiting panel of Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Subject Review experts who assessed the quality of teaching provided by the School. The review included both the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. QUB Clinical Pharmacy programme The MSc in Clinical Pharmacy is a 3- year part- time programme. Students have the option of exiting with a Postgraduate Certificate at the end of the first year or with a Postgraduate Diploma at the end of the second year. In each module, students are provided with a comprehensive set of learning materials, which have been authored by expert clinical pharmacists, and they follow a timetable for studying the materials and submitting assignments to the Centre for marking. In addition, some modules include work- based assessments which are marked by the student s work- based Local Mentor. The third year consists of a 12 month research module. During this module, students undertake a work- based practice research or audit project. Each student is allocated to a member of staff within the School of Pharmacy, who supervises their research project. Who is the programme for? This programme has been developed specifically for pharmacists who are employed in the hospital sector and who wish to specialise in clinical pharmacy. Student support With distance learning, we feel that it is important that students do not feel isolated whilst completing the course. For that reason, student support is an issue that we take very seriously. Each student receives a comprehensive handbook at the beginning of the course. The handbook

3 Queen s University Belfast - Clinical Pharmacy programme provides detailed guidance on the structure and requirements of the course and the course timetable ensures that students know exactly what they should be doing and when they should be doing it. In addition, the Distance Learning Centre is staffed by four full- time members of staff who can be contacted by telephone or e- mail during normal office hours. The Centre s manager worked for several years as the Clinical Pharmacy Co- ordinator in one of the UK s largest hospitals. Our Deputy Distance Learning Manager joined the Centre in February 2012; she is a pharmacist with several years experience in developing e- learning materials. In addition, the Centre is staffed by 2 full- time administrative staff. The Local mentor It is important that students have support within their workplace and therefore each student must have a Local Mentor within their workplace. The student is required to identify a suitable Local Mentor before their application to join the programme can be accepted. Typically, the Local Mentor will be a senior clinical pharmacist or a medical consultant. The Local Mentor must be able to facilitate access to patients and their medical notes as required. In addition, the Local Mentor is required to meet with the student on a regular basis to discuss progress and provide advice when required. We suggest that students should aim to meet with their Local Mentor for at least 30 minutes each week. Local mentors are also required to undertake some work- based assessments, for example, taking a patient s medication history, inhaler counselling, and assessing case presentations by their student. Local mentors will be given guidance on marking and use standard marking forms for work- based assessments. Aims of the programme The overall aim is to improve the knowledge base and practice skills of hospital pharmacists so that they can contribute more fully to the provision of clinical pharmacy services. The programme has been developed in collaboration with clinical pharmacy specialists in the United Kingdom. The emphasis in the first year is on developing clinical skills; by the end of the year students will be able to demonstrate competence in a variety of clinical pharmacy skills and will have developed their knowledge of common clinical topics such as the management of pain, infection and adverse drug reactions. In year 2 the emphasis is on the application of clinical pharmacy skills within a number of therapeutic specialties. Students study three compulsory topics, respiratory disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and select two further topics from a range of options. In addition, second year students develop their literature evaluation and research skills in preparation for the research project in year 3. MSc students carry out a practice- based research project during year 3. Learning materials Our distance learning students study a variety of learning materials including printed materials downloaded from the course web pages and web- based resources. In addition, we are developing a range of e- learning materials for distance learning students.

4 Queen s University Belfast - Clinical Pharmacy programme Assessment A variety of assessment methods are used throughout the programme. This includes: Practice- based workbooks Clinical case studies Practical communication skills, e.g. medication history interview, patient counselling interview, inhaler counselling Oral presentations Online tests Literature evaluation Statistical analysis Research dissertation (MSc) Some assessments are done in the student s workplace and are supervised by the Local Mentor (practical communication skills and oral presentations). The remainder of the coursework assignments are submitted to the Distance Learning Centre electronically. In addition, students sit a 3- hour written examination paper in June, at the end of the PG Diploma year. The examination covers the topics studied in the therapeutics modules. Examination centres are arranged in the UK and in our international students countries of residence.
