Pharmacists play an important role in monitoring of patient health and medication compliance and this is the chance to show you have those skills!
Do you want to:
Well the Boots Clinical Competition is the opportunity for you!
Take part in your School’s round, prove your clinical abilities!
Round One (Blood Pressure Reading):
This round is held from November 2018 within each School of Pharmacy around the country. On the day you will be provided with a scenario and allocated 10 minutes to research and prepare using various reference sources provided. You will then have 10 minutes to respond to take the patient’s blood pressure reading and to provide them with appropriate advice. There will also be an opportunity for you to receive feedback afterwards.
The winner will progress into the national semi-final. The session will be coordinated by your school BPSA Rep(s), who will provide you with a date, time, and venue for the first round. Stay tuned for the date of the first round within your school…
Round Two (Inhaler Technique):
The winner of round one from each School of Pharmacy will be invited to attend the national semi-final, which will be held at one of the BPSA Spring Conferences. The semi-final will follow the same format as round one. In the absence of the winner from round one being able to attend, the runner-up from round one will be invited to attend in their place. At the end of this round, there will be five runners-up and five winners. The winners from this round will then progress to the final round.
Round Three (Blood Glucose Testing):
Round three will be held during BPSA Day of our 77th Annual Conference 2018, held at Nottingham University. The final will follow the same format as before, but here, four runners-up will receive a prize. The winner of the final will win a grand prize. There will also be an opportunity for all participants to experience Annual Conference, as well as an opportunity to network with potential employers at our MedEx (Medical exhibition).
