Objective of the conference:
The practice of pharmacy and pharmaceutical education are undergoing unprecedented global changes. So, the use of a needs-based approach to education with an emphasis on linking pharmacy education with the health needs of populations and national priorities are required.
Therefore, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) should be locally determined, globally connected, and quality assured socially accountable based on a clear description of professional competencies, linked with health care needs.
In an era when decisions are taken on a global scale, it becomes even more important for pharmacy students to engage in international opportunities that will contribute to social and institutional cooperation. The capacity to provide pharmaceutical services globally is dependent upon having a competent, adaptable and capable workforce, and a similarly integrated academic workforce to train and support sufficient numbers of new registered pharmacists and other support staff at both entry-to-practice and advanced levels.
Pharmacy and pharmaceutical education has to be designed so it can deliver the skills needed by students to work in different pharmaceutical settings once qualified, there are many gaps to be filled in pharmacy and pharmaceutical education worldwide and in order to mitigate these issues undergraduate students must be taught with new methodologies to help them adapt to real life problems in a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary way.
The objective of the brain-storming conference at Lloyd would be to engage in discussing and solving such issues.
- Clear career pathways and training schemes to address the academic workforce in general, and a practitioner-academic workforce in particular.
- Achieving sustainable solutions to the challenges surrounding pharmacy education.
- Student-centred learning to achieve the problem-solving skills and application of knowledge to real life problems.
- Bridge the gap between pharmacy curricula and global health needs.
- Effective quality assurance of pharmacy and pharmaceutical education, and the production of competent pharmacy graduates.
- Development of professional curricula to prepare pharmacy students for future innovations in personalised medicines, information systems, and team-based patient care.
- Enhanced global experiences for pharmacy students by reaching out to faculty and maintaining international relationships, taking advantage of existing university services and relationships, and collaborating with other health professions programs and organisation
