Today sees the launch of a FIP toolkit to support pharmacy professional associations, universities and educators in advancing pharmaceutical education at all levels, from undergraduate to continuing professional development. Release of the FIP Education Transformation Toolkit follows the federation’s global call to action for advancing pharmaceutical education made in December 2021. The call outlined 18 actions needed to avert the predicted shortfall in health workers and to help the profession meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These actions included quality assurance of pharmacy education and training, and supporting the development of advanced specialist frameworks. The toolkit brings together numerous globally relevant resources for each of the 18 recommended actions. “We have urged all stakeholders to take our recommended actions to advance pharmaceutical education. We are now providing them with added support to do so. This digital toolkit is a much-needed compendium of FIP education resources that will serve to help all educators and trainers to provide quality education,” said Prof. Ralph Altiere, chair of FIP Education.
