Barbara Gobis, Director, Pharmacists Clinic, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences
With the expansion of a pharmacist’s scope of practice and the new Entry-to-Practice PharmD program, there is greater emphasis on experiential learning and patient-centered care. This advancement necessitates increasing student exposure to real patients and pharmacists to better prepare them for practice. The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences has an on-site Pharmacists Clinic, which is a licensed pharmacist-led patient care clinic, that models best-practice patient care and provides hands-on learning opportunities.
In this project, the Clinic will create recordings of real-life care interactions between patients and licensed pharmacists. These recordings will be edited into videos and integrated into case-based learning within the pharmacy program. These videos will provide an authentic pharmacist-patient care interaction to enhance the theoretical and on-site practice education of. Student and educator feedback will be collected to measure the effectiveness of using videos of real patient cases versus traditional paper case-based learning in the classroom.
