Peer Discussion

A peer discussion is a learning and development activity that encourages you to engage with others in your reflection on learning and practice. The intended outcome is to reduce professional isolation and encourage reflection drawing on third party perspectives.  A peer discussion should be an open and honest conversation with someone you trust and respect. The aim is to aid your development, it is not about making an assessment of you

Reflective Account

The reflective account encourages you to think about how you meet our standards for pharmacy professionals in the work you do as a pharmacy professional. It increases your awareness and understanding of the standards and helps you reflect on how your practice affects the people using your services. You will be told the range of standards you can reflect on at the start of your registration year
