About

The Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice programme at Queen's University Belfast was developed following extensive consultation with pharmacists and their employers both within and beyond the United Kingdom.

The modules are designed to help pharmacists to acquire and demonstrate the advanced-level competencies defined in the Royal Pharmaceutical Society's Advanced Pharmacy Framework.
