Post-registration foundation pharmacist curriculum
What is the Post-registration Foundation Pharmacist Curriculum?
The curriculum is underpinned by the RPS Foundation Pharmacist Framework (2019) which was produced from an evidence based role analysis of the current and future roles (until 2023) of post-registration foundation pharmacists practising in all sectors across the UK.
The curriculum includes independent prescribing to reflect the core changes in pharmacist practice which are included in the new GPhC initial education and training (IET) standards, and develops leadership, management, education and research capabilities. It bridges the period until the new IET standards have been fully implemented, offering a structured pathway for newly qualified pharmacists.
The content of the curriculum will be revised to keep pace with these changes. It will support pharmacists to develop the skillset to progress to RPS advanced practice credentialing pathways.
The curriculum was developed through a collaborative approach with UK and sector wide representation on the programme task and finish groups. It is accompanied by a topic guide which provides additional information to support achieving some of the outcomes.
