Welcome to the Spring 2016 edition of Future Pharmacist. We have a veritable feast of informative and exciting content to see you through to summertime, so whatever your interests, you’re sure to find something to whet your appetite.
BPSA President, Lottie Bain, explains to us how members can get involved with our BPSA campaigns. These are designed to promote your views in the wider world of pharmacy and help us to advocate for a better future.
Annual Conference is coming up very soon. This is a life-changing early step on your journey in the world of pharmacy, and I look forward to seeing you there! Annual conference organisers Charlotte and Izzie give us a sneak preview of what they have lined up.
Our CPPE professional development article gives us expert advice on honing your communication skills, all-important for providing good care to patients. If you haven’t heard of MedicinesComplete, check out our review of this comprehensive database. It could come in very handy during report writing.
Saman Kay explains to us how pharmacists are ideally placed to provide value to the pharmaceutical industry, thanks to the unique fusion of scientific theory and clinical practice in our degree. If you’re interested in putting your science background to use when you qualify, be sure to give this a read. Pharmacists are also a crucial lynchpin in saving antibiotics from becoming obsolete. As pharmacy students, we can play our part too. Student Exchange Officer Sam Doherty gives all the information you need in his article.
The BPSA Executive wishes you all the best in your upcoming exams. On a personal note, I hope to see you at a BPSA event soon.
