Diploma structure continued…

  • ‘Core’ experience arranged in curriculum guides with learning outcomes (LOs) – a bit like competencies

  • Training centres ensure that rotations/ward experience/on call provide the experience to meet most of them

  • Practitioners are in control and ‘tick themselves off’

  • Assessment/exams act to double check the practitioner have met these learning outcomes

  • One way to look at it: Diploma ‘syllabus’ = LOs. ‘Curriculum’ = rotations/wardsand so on

Rotations

Rotations

  • Ideally rotations in MI, Technical services, Patient Services with ongoing clinical commitment

  • Some Trusts cannot guarantee rotations through all sections in 18 months e.g. no MI or no Tech services

  • Technical Pharmacy CG has information on how to meet LOs outwith Tech Services e.g. in patient services, on wards

  • Some MI learning outcomes can be met using enquiries received on the ward or on call but may need to complete UKMi tutorials in own time
