Back in November we launched a new initiative – the BPSA Monthly Campaigns. The idea of the campaigns was to provide a talking point, picking a different theme each month, to encourage you all to get involved with the wider profession and share your views.
The first campaign focused on pharmacy student numbers and degree entry requirements. The campaign ran predominantly on social media, and was intended as an opportunity for students to share their views on the subject. We had a great response from you all, and you can have a look at the discussions and comments under #BPSACampaign on Twitter and Facebook if you didn’t get the chance to get involved.
We also shared some links to news articles relating to the topic that we thought you might find interesting, so go back and have a look at these if you can! To mark the end of the campaign I took part in a live Webinar with Pharmacist Café where we talked a lot about the background to the subject and some of the concerns you had all raised. If you missed it you can watch it back here:
If you didn’t get the chance to have your say, but still want to share your thoughts then please do! Just remember to use #BPSACampaign so everyone can see your contributions. Just because we are moving on to a new month and so a new topic, doesn’t mean these conversations have come to an end. This is a really hot topic within the profession at the moment and we will continue to share your views, shout about your concerns and get your voices heard however we can.
Our next campaign topic will be kicking off this month, and we are focusing on future roles for pharmacists and prescribing. Follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook and keep an eye on the discussion developing under #BPSACampaign for more information on how to get involved!
