Developments in education and training

 

As discussed in Chapter 17, the development of clinical pharmacy was underpinned by education and training. In 1982 the UK Clinical Pharmacy Association (UKCPA) was formed as a broad umbrella for all clinical areas of pharmacy. This has provided an opportunity for pharmacists to share best clinical practice through conference workshops and case study discussions, as well as through clinical networks where ideas and strategic developments are shared. Some specialists formed their own groups, such as oncology, paediatric and mental health pharmacist, and became faculties of the College of Pharmacy Practice, developing their specialisms through individual study days, conferences and postgraduate courses.
