Sheila Walter, Katrina Mulherin, Craig D Cox
BACKGROUND: Pharmacy faculties in Canada are transitioning to the doctor of pharmacy degree which will require approximately one-third of curricula contact time in experiential education. Preceptors will be responsible for delivering this experiential component and many have received little or no training in how to be an effective educator. Although training is mandated through accreditation standards, competencies to serve as a foundation for preceptor development have yet to be created...

Qingqing Xu, Sujit S Sansgiry
INTRODUCTION: The physical activity (PA) behavior and its association with academic performance has not been examined among professional pharmacy (PharmD) students in didactic years. METHODS: A survey was administered to a cohort of PharmD students at University of Houston that collected information related to each student's PA and grade point average (GPA). Correlation analyses and multiple regression were performed to evaluate factors associated with GPA. RESULTS: The response rate was 58...

INTRODUCTION: Preceptor development is critical to successful delivery of experiential learning. Although many preceptor development programs exist, a more individualized approach to training is needed. To accomplish this a national preceptor development program should be considered based on the continuing professional development model. A detailed prototype for this program has been described. METHODS: In this final installment of the series, the twelve evidence-based recommendations from the first installment were utilized to construct a prototype for a preceptor development program...

Health care systems expect primary care clinicians to manage panels of patients and improve population health, yet few have been trained to do so. An interprofessional panel management (PM) curriculum is one possible strategy to address this training gap and supply future primary care practices with clinicians and teams prepared to work together to improve the health of individual patients and populations. This paper describes a Veterans Administration (VA) sponsored multi-site interprofessional PM curriculum development effort...

BACKGROUND: In Mexico, the Modelo Nacional de Farmacia Hospitalaria (MNFH, or National Hospital Pharmacy Model), published in 2009, mainly aims to promote the provision of clinical pharmacy services in private and public hospitals. However, there is little scientific documentation about the quality of these services. OBJECTIVES: To explore healthcare professionals' perceptions related to the quality of clinical pharmacy services provision. METHODS: A case-study based on a qualitative approach was performed at the pharmaceutical services unit at a public hospital located in Mexico City, which operates under the administrative control of the Ministry of Health...

Many advanced practice registered nursing (APRN) students struggle to thrive in their clinical rotation due to the wide variability in their clinical knowledge. To address the variability and gaps in knowledge, we created an interprofessional web-based, self-directed curriculum for APRN students that is clinically relevant and specific to the emergency department (ED) rotation. The modules are a product of collaboration between the medical, nursing, and pharmacy faculty at an academic medical center. This web-based curricular preceptorship model that incorporates new technology and innovation in clinical rotations can provide an opportunity to enhance the clinical education of the APRN students in the ED...

 Training pharmacy students to become future clinical pharmacists is an important mission in the 6-year school of pharmacy curriculum in Japan. Since 2014, we have conducted an on-campus practical training program to develop basic skills in clinical pharmacy for third-year pharmacy students at Meiji Pharmaceutical University. This training program includes searching for and retrieving drug information; interpretation of laboratory findings, vital signs, and physical examinations; literature appraisal; and professional writing...

INTRODUCTION: Faculties of Pharmacy worldwide have to adapt their curriculum to accreditation criteria. The present study explored how the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada's (AFPC's) 2010 Educational Outcomes are perceived and taught at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy (LDFP). These outcomes were adapted from the CanMeds Physician Competency Framework which describes both medical expert and non-expert roles. METHODS: We wondered if pharmacy would struggle, as medicine has, to integrate these roles into curricula in meaningful ways, given the absence of previous studies from Pharmacy...

Interprofessional education is essential in that it helps healthcare disciplines better utilize each other and provide team-based collaboration that improves patient care. Many pharmacy training programs struggle to implement interprofessional education. This purpose of the study was to examine the effect of a 30-h interprofessional training that included pharmacy students to determine if the training helped these students build valuable knowledge and skills while working alongside other health care professions...

The experiential component of a doctor of pharmacy curricula is an ideal, yet underutilized vehicle to advance interprofessional education (IPE) initiatives. To date, most experiential-based IPE initiatives occur in a naturally occurring, non-deliberate fashion. The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Experiential Education Section formed the Task Force on Intentional Interprofessional Education in Experiential Education in academic year 2015-2016 to explore the issue. This commentary describes the work of the task force, including the following elements: defining intentional interprofessional experiential education as "the explicit effort by preceptors and practice sites to create/foster educational opportunities or activities designed specifically to achieve interprofessional educational competencies;" conducting a systematic literature review to identify examples of intentional interprofessional experiential education in the published literature; surveying faculty with oversight of experiential education programs and preceptors within those programs; and generating recommendations to stakeholders including AACP, pharmacy schools, and experiential education administrators...

REVIEW
Helen Vosper, Sue Hignett
Objective. To take a systematic approach to exploring patient safety teaching in health care curricula, particularly in relation to how educators ensure students achieve patient safety competencies. Findings. There is a lack of formally articulated patient safety curricula, which means that student learning about safety is largely informal and influenced by the quality and culture of the practice environment. Human Factors and Ergonomics appeared largely absent from curricula. Summary. Despite its absence from health care curricula, Human Factors and Ergonomics approaches offer a vehicle for embedding patient safety teaching...

 Literary English is different from science English (SE) and pharmaceutical science English (PSE). Therefore, a totally new approach was adopted for students to learn PSE at Kyoto Pharmaceutical University (KPU). In 2012, a 4-year program for teaching PSE was proposed, and a stepwise-stepup tertiary science English education (SSTSEE) system was introduced at KPU. The system provides a novel form of PSE teaching that stretches from year 1 to 4, where the PSE level progresses to higher levels of learning with each passing academic year...

Objective. To identify common components of inpatient general medicine advanced pharmacy practice experiences (APPEs) across sites, determine which components were important to standardize, and distinguish a benchmark of each component that would indicate standardization. Methods. In-depth interviews about the student experience were conducted with two students and one or more preceptors at each of 12 inpatient general medicine sites in the greater Seattle metropolitan area. Data from transcribed interviews were analyzed, then collapsed into a single spreadsheet for comparison...
