Active Education and Research Agenda

Commissioning and engaging in research through formal links with credible organisations and delivering educational awareness events

Research and Policy Work

We routinely commission external research in the interest of our members and our responses to a wide range of consultations often involve weeks of research into the subject area. We publish and promote many policy papers and their creation often requires the involvement of experts and academic advisers, as well as focus group meetings with pharmacists and other healthcare professionals. Consequently, the PDA is invited to participate in numerous government advisory committees.


Links with Schools of Pharmacy

Through close links with pharmacy students and universities, we get to hear what life is like for students on the ground. We provide bespoke awareness sessions and training to students in universities throughout the UK on pharmacy law and ethics, risk management and fitness to practice issues and all these materials are tailored to the academic year.

We also sponsor the BPSA pre-reg conference and run pre-reg conferences ourselves.
