Professor Larry Goodyer on community pharmacist prescribing competence, training, supervision and the future of community pharmacy clinical services

Going into this series (with an open mind) we have made a few assumptions about the current 'lie of the community pharmacy training land' and it is largely that there is very little investment in community pharmacist development above and beyond mandatory training requirements.

As part of this series, we will talk to a range of key players in pharmacy with an interest in community pharmacist education and training. My co-host for many of the series will be fellow pharmacist Derek Evans.

In this episode, we were very fortunate to be joined by Professor Larry Goodyer.  Larry Goodyer is Professor of Pharmacy Practice at the School of Pharmacy at De Montfort University UK.

We discussed a range of topics. the list below will give you a flavour of the conversation.

  • The current state of community pharmacy in the UK.
  • The community pharmacy workforce crisis.
  • Training activity currently happening in community pharmacy.
  • Whether or not community pharmacists are knowingly competent when using their independent prescribing qualification.
  • The regulation of independent prescribing.
  • Futures training models for community pharmacists.
  • The importance of supervision and multidisciplinary working.
