Clinical Pharmacy for Secondary and Tertiary Care course offered at Liverpool John Moores University is aimed at pharmacists working in clinical roles in secondary or tertiary care centres.
The course caters for registered pharmacists employed in secondary care and is tailored for graduates in the early stages of their career. It enables pharmacists to appreciate the problems encountered by other healthcare professionals by promoting an understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of healthcare.
By promoting a rigorous scientific approach to clinical pharmaceutical problems, you are able to act as a clinical adviser. The course will extend your knowledge of therapeutics, increasing your value as a specialist in drug-related matters and enhancing your powers of communication and logical argument.
The School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences is a partner with the Centre for Pharmacy Innovation (CfPI). The CfPI provides excellent links with community pharmacy and secondary care, through the other partners, Lloyds Pharmacies and The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS FT. These links have helped to support the development of this programme and provide assurance regarding the relevance of the course and its content.
