The Research, evidence and evaluation toolkit (REET) maps the skills, activities and competencies that relate to leading, supporting and engaging in research via an interactive online system. REET supports users you to identify, recognise
and further develop research skills and engage in
activities that generate evidence but ultimately we want this toolkit to be more than just an information source. We want it to steer and guide users in the development of research skills and offer a pathway specific to their individual needs.
Through a set of structured context rich examples, this toolkit
aligns to nationally recognised professional development frameworks
(including the RPS Foundation and Advanced Pharmacy
Frameworks). Collectively, the described knowledge and skills form the
building blocks for all pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists
undertaking (or wishing to undertake) research and evaluation activities
across all sectors and scopes of practice. The REET also facilitates
self-reflection of individual skills level and skills gap and therefore
enables the identification of professional development needs. For
pharmacists who are members of the RPS, this toolkit can also be a
useful tool to support your Foundation and Faculty journeys, as well as
to target your continuous professional development (CPD) and continuing
fitness to practice (CFtP).
Target audience – Pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists as well
as education and training providers, mentors, employers or any
healthcare professionals undertaking (or interested in engaging in)
pharmacy/pharmaceutical research and evaluation activities.
Aim – Facilitate the identification, recognition and development of skills and activities that generate evidence.
