BPSA Public Health Campaign: The Cardiff Story

As a National Representative of the British Pharmaceutical Students’ Association (BPSA) at the Cardiff School of Pharmacy I work with fellow BPSA National Representatives here at the school to organise various events throughout the academic year. I have been very fortunate to be part of a strong, friendly and proactive team whose aim is to get more pharmacy students involved with the BPSA. We understand that not every pharmacy student is able to participate in BPSA events so we decided that one way we could get pharmacy students to be more involved was by carrying out a BPSA Public Health Campaign here in our own School of Pharmacy.

Raising Awareness!

  Despite the best efforts of many, pharmacy teams still tend to operate in traditional sector-specific silos with little communication or collaboration between them. As financial and operational challenges really start to hit our workloads we have less time to discuss problems or learn and share with others, even as the wider benefits of multidisciplinary collaboration become more important. Despite these pressures, most of us still find time to be active online.  On average, social media users in 2015 had 5 to 6 different social media accounts - 320 million of which were on Twitter - and it’s here that we bring together pharmacy professionals looking to break out of their silos, communicate, network, collaborate and innovate.
