RPS grants Faculty Accreditation to Pharmacy Management Leadership Programme

12 Aug 2015

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society is delighted to announce that Pharmacy Management’s first full Leadership programme, Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy Programme (CLIP), has been granted RPS Faculty Accreditation, as part of the “first wave” process.  

Pharmacy Management has also been confirmed as part of the RPS “first wave” of accredited Faculty Training Providers. 

The Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy Programme will run in Scotland in 2016, and expansion of this programme to the rest of the UK is anticipated.

Dr. Catherine Duggan, RPS Director of Professional Development and Support said: “Achieving Faculty Accreditation means that this programme is recognised as delivering high quality training that aligns to the Advanced Pharmacy Framework, which will be considered a support tool for pharmacists who are embarking on their Faculty journey. 

“In addition, becoming a Faculty Training Provider will signify that Pharmacy Management has demonstrated that its training and development provision meets the recognised RPS standards for quality and content, supporting pharmacists setting out on their Faculty journey”. 

Clare Howard, Medicines Optimisation Lead at Pharmacy Management and CLIP Programme Co-ordinator, said: “In developing the Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy programme it was very evident how much the skills delegates will acquire link so well to the competencies in the Leadership and Management sections of the Faculty of the RPS. The programme will support our emerging leaders in Pharmacy to develop robust and resilient leadership skills to become great leaders and at the same time make the steps to RPS Faculty status which is so important for us as a key healthcare profession”. 

Pharmacy Management has made a strong commitment to support the RPS Faculty, and to support and encourage pharmacists attending CLIP and Pharmacy Management Academy events to make their Faculty submissions.
