The main focus of the Foundation Programme (FP) is on in-practice training and experiential learning in the workplace. This provides FP pharmacists with the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and experience in three core patient-facing areas (dispensary services, medicines optimisation (MO) and evidence based practice (EBP)), plus one additional optional area relevant to their area of practice (technical services – hospital, or public health - community / primary care). As part of their in-practice training, FP pharmacists will undertake practice activities to help them to develop and demonstrate their competence in each practice area. See below for general and practice area-specific forms and information. NB no patient-identifiable information must be included, to comply with GDPR.
