#1
Ricarda Micallef, Reem Kayyali
BACKGROUND: Pharmacy professionals have multiple opportunities to attend learning events run by a series of providers. However, there has never been a large-scale evaluation of events. Currently, formats of learning sessions differ by provider with no optimum model identified. Pharmacy Education South London was formed in April 2014 for the provision of education and training for pharmacy professionals in South London, running sessions multiple times across various locations. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this work was to identify factors that influence the perceived success of a face-to-face supplementary education and training event from the perspective of attendees...

OBJECTIVES: Effective strategies are needed to translate knowledge (evidence) into practice to improve the quality of community pharmacy services. We report the first step of a novel knowledge translation process which involved the systematic identification and prioritisation of community pharmacy services in Scotland which were perceived to require improvement and/or guideline development. METHODS: This process involved three stages and a stakeholder group comprising community pharmacists, policy makers, lay and pharmacy organisation representatives...

REVIEW
Sally Jacobs, Sheena Johnson, Karen Hassell
BACKGROUND: Workplace stress in community pharmacy is increasing internationally due, in part, to pharmacists' expanding roles and escalating workloads. Whilst the business case for preventing and managing workplace stress by employers is strong, there is little evidence for the effectiveness of organisational stress management interventions in community pharmacy settings. AIM: To identify and synthesise existing evidence for the effectiveness of organisational solutions to workplace stress from the wider organisational literature which may be adaptable to community pharmacies...

OBJECTIVE: There is substantial evidence demonstrating that transferring patients between care providers is a high-risk area for medicines management. This study aimed to investigate the effect of sending patients' hospital discharge letters to their nominated community pharmacists on the number of discrepancies between the patient's general practitioner (GP) records and the discharge letter and between the patient's self-described medication regime and the discharge letter. METHODS: In a randomised, controlled trial, 33 participants in two groups, control and intervention, had their discharge letter sent to either their GP only or their GP and nominated community pharmacy after hospital discharge...
