Numeracy is a key skill for pharmacists and errors may result in patient harm. Little is known about changes in the numeracy skills of pharmacy students as they progress through the MPharm programme.
Ethics approval was obtained. A contextualised diagnostic numeracy test was administered to a cohort of MPharm students in their first week of MPharm.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
