About this course
LJMU's Clinical Pharmacy MSc enables primary care and community pharmacy pharmacists to maximise their role within interprofessional settings.
This course reflects the evolving role of Pharmacists in primary care and at the interface with secondary care. It is closely aligned with the Government's published plans for the role of the Pharmacist in NHS England.
The programme aims to support you in developing your practice. It will serve as the base for successful and effective careers in Clinical Pharmacy, with those having completed the programme being equipped to effectively optimise patient care, make evidence-based recommendations around therapies and develop practice to directly benefit the patients and organisations they serve.
How learning is monitored on your programme
To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.
At the heart of the course is the requirement to maintain a professional practice portfolio, detailing clinical practice and personal development. Each module will involve formative and/or summative assessments, which help to contribute to this portfolio or draw on its content.
Assesment methods for this course include: written exams, oral and written case reports and written reports of activities such as practice evaluation exercises. Some modules also have competency requirements (pass/fail assessments). These components are based around demonstrating competence through Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) and the professional practice portfolio.
Students can also exit with PGDip or PGCert Awards.
