Expert practice guide to support pharmacists

BSR has endorsed the publication of the ‘ Expert practice guide to support pharmacists with the knowledge, skills, experience and behaviours to advance their practice.’  The guide, co-badged with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, encourages practitioners to think critically and use knowledge in rheumatic therapeutics to facilitate informed decision making and promote optimal medicines management for patients. It provides an overview of the knowledge and skills required to practice at advanced level in rheumatology pharmacy at three stages, in line with the requirements of Advanced Pharmacy Framework (APF):

  • - Advanced Stage I
  • - Advanced Stage II
  • - Mastery

The document is also intended to be useful to the wider community working with patients with rheumatic disease from all sectors of care.
