FIP Development Goal 6 Workforce Element

Globally, we will have:

Strategies and programmes in place that develop professional leadership skills (including clinical and executive leadership) for all stages of career development, including pharmaceutical sciences and initial education and training.


  • Creation of programmes and strategies for the development of leadership skills (including tools and mentoring systems), to support pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists through their careers.
  • Advocacy for leadership development in healthcare teams, linked to collaborative working activities (for example, promotion of team-based approaches to healthcare service delivery).
  • Ideally, this should be linked with competency and foundation and early year career development activities
