Is advanced practice for pharmacists the answer to all our problems?

For a number of years, there has been a movement towards advanced practice for pharmacists. Our panellists for this session has been right at the sharp end of developing and championing this movement.

Learning objectives from this session include:

  • Gain an understanding of what advanced practice is.
  • Take part in debate around why consultant level practice for pharmacists is something we as a profession should aspire to.
  • Consider whether the ‘procrastinating perfectionism’ that has been described by authors like Zubin Austin could act as a barrier to these goals.
  • Learn about how you might start your own journey towards advanced practice as a pharmacist.
