Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences Students @ University of Strathclyde pledge

1

With great thanks to Anne Boyter, Director of Teaching Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Strathclyde, for kindly inviting us along to speak to 3rd year pharmacy students on Monday 9th January, as part of their consolidation week. Tommy was joined by friend and colleague, Graeme Morrison ( @ALLIANCEGraeme ), Prescription for Excellence Inclusion Officer, to talk about the importance of seeing the person behind the condition and focusing on what matters to people. Pharmacists are very accessible healthcare professionals and have a growing role in supporting people with long term conditions, so it was important to emphasise the difference that these future pharmacists could make to people’s lives.

This was a great way to encourage the students to reflect on why they chose the course and to look beyond the science to how they would use their expertise in medicines to help people achieve what matters to them.
