Workshop: Curriculum Design and Updating for Clinical Pharmacy Teaching

Valletta Campus, University of Malta, Malta

Description  

The aim of the course is to provide participants with an insight into aspects of curriculum design, methods of teaching and assessment, and incorporation of hands-on experience in the teaching using a team-based approach. Teams will create a plan of action for enhancing these areas and initiating change at their home institution. The course is also intended to stimulate the development of a network of clinical pharmacy educators. The course is intended for faculty members, preceptors, teacher practitioners and pharmacists who are involved in development and elaboration of courses at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate level. The course presents principles of curricular re-design, delivery and assessment. Examples are drawn from the experience of the faculty in introducing innovative methods of teaching of clinical pharmacy. It guides educators and pharmacists involved in the development of training programs on reflecting on curriculum evaluation, re-design, delivery and assessment.

ORAL BIOPHARMACEUTICS TOOLS: WHAT’S NEW AND WHAT’S COMING?

Nuremberg, Germany

Description  

Dissolution testing is an important tool from early development to life cycle management of a drug product. With the Quality by Design (QbD) approach critical process parameters, material attributes and quality attributes are identified. Their impact on in-vitro dissolution and bioavailability are assessed. In early development, biorelevant dissolution/release testing, i. e. the evaluation of luminal behavior of drug products in gastrointestinal lumen with in vitro methodologies, is useful for predictions of formulation and food effects on plasma levels. It is also utilized to decrease the number of in vivo studies required during the drug development process and to mitigate the risk related to in vivo bioequivalance studies. Recent updates and case studies on these subjects will be discussed by scientists working in academia, industry and regulatory agencies from Europe, the US and Japan. There will be a general discussion session at the end of workshop, as well as the opportunity for attendees to ask questions at the conclusion of each presentation.

78th FIP World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Glasgow, United Kingdom

Description  

The 2018 FIP congress in Glasgow, Scotland, invites pharmacy practitioners and pharmaceutical scientists from around the world to come together to consider ways of extending the role of pharmacists so that they play a full part in ensuring patients, and health systems, achieve full benefit from the medicines people take. The ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach is clearly failing many patients around the globe for the pharmacological treatment of disease. Pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists are uniquely trained and qualified health care professionals capable of personalising therapy for improving patient outcomes.
