Medicines Learning Portal
Clinical problem solving for pharmacists
Brought to you by the Medicines Advice Service at Southampton University, the vision of The Medicines Learning Portal is to bring together resources and expertise that will help UK pharmacists at the beginning of their careers to tackle the clinical problems that will confront them throughout their professional lives. At the moment the site is aimed at hospital pharmacists.
All pharmacists involved with patient care need clinical problem solving skills to deliver medicines optimisation.
The Medicines Learning Portal will assist the development of these skills by:
Providing knowledge about medicines, and addressing basic principles of medicines safety for key subject areas.
Showing the right questions to ask when problem-solving.
Recommending sources of information about medicines.
Guiding pharmacists on how to apply their professional judgement.
Advising on communication techniques for delivering expert advice.
