The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has launched a range of resources to aid the professional development of pharmacists from preregistration to practice.
The new resources include a variety of guidance for preregistration trainees such as how to build rapport with their tutors and prepare for progress reviews.
The RPS has also developed two new tools for the RPS Foundation programme. The Consultation Skills Assessment (CSA) is a reflective tool used to support the development of behaviours needed by pharmacists to conduct successful consultations and the Reflective Account tool helps foundation pharmacists to reflect on and review their practice and plan their future professional development.
For pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists, the Mentoring Handbook is now available as part of the RPS’s vision for every member to have the opportunity to develop and advance with the support of a mentor and to become a mentor themselves. The handbook aims to help those who are new to mentoring and to refresh the knowledge of those who have been mentoring for a while.
Further to this, the RPS Professional Support Service has developed an infographic to demonstrate how the Society can support hospital pharmacists in their day-to-day practice and professional development, from early training through to advanced practice.
