Clinical pharmacy teaching workshop

Thirty-five educators and pharmacists from 11 countries recently participated in a workshop at the University of Malta’s Valletta campus on teaching clinical pharmacy.

The workshop aimed to provide an overview of aspects of curriculum design, teaching and assessment methods, and the incorporation of practical experience into teaching using a team approach. .

Examples of innovative methods of teaching clinical pharmacy in the United States and at the University’s Department of Pharmacy were cited as examples. The department is a leader of change in moving towards patient-centered curricula and in the development of teaching models. This is why the first such workshop was held in Malta, merging pharmacy training experiences in the United States and Europe.

The event served to help educators and pharmacists involved in the development of training programs to reflect on the evaluation, redesign, delivery and evaluation of curricula. It also aimed to stimulate the development of a network of clinical pharmacy trainers.

The workshop was organized by the University’s Department of Pharmacy in conjunction with the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) and the European Association faculties of pharmacy (EAFP).
