PHPR 1002 - Foundations in Pharmacy Practice (2)

The purpose of this course is to introduce student pharmacists to the history of the profession and the role of the pharmacist as a part of the healthcare team. The course introduces the profession of pharmacy to student pharmacists, and the multitude of career pathways that exist for pharmacists. In addition, student pharmacists will discuss the foundational elements of the drug use process (i.e., prescription process, legal requirements, and support personnel).  Student pharmacists will also explore the concept of interprofessional, patient-centered care and focus on its implementation in various populations, with a specific focus on the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process.   Portions of this course will also provide for hands on experience in patient assessment skills.
