Advancing Pharmacy Practice

Beyond the foundation years pharmacists, may choose to continue to develop their knowledge, skills and competence to evolve their scope of practice. Building on the underpinning generic elements of prior training, pharmacists can further develop specialist knowledge and skills. The Royal Pharmaceutical Society roadmap to advanced practice outlines this journey, and the Advanced Pharmacy Framework supports practitioners through their journey to advanced practice.

In addition, formal postgraduate training courses such as advanced pharmacy practice, independent prescribing or advanced clinical practice are available.
