This unit of study provides students with an opportunity to draw together learning from across the entire MPharm degree and synthesise this with their prior knowledge and experience, developing ideas for further studies and intellectual and/or professional growth in their practice. Students will work in teams to undertake a project that reflects the interests of the team members. Projects can range from mini-research projects to undertaking a series of medication management reviews or developing an educational program for use in pharmacy. This unit will offer students an opportunity to critically evaluate their existing practice and provision, and gain skills to promote change, improve services and affect outcomes in their patients. Outcomes will be assessed by presentations at a student seminar day at the end of semester.
