  • Career choices, working patterns and the future pharmacy workforce Subscription

    28 JUL 2006 23:00

    We recognise that pharmacy careers in the future may be characterised as following a portfolio or “boundaryless” career1 whereby job moves may not necessarily involve promotion, and pharmacy careers may consist more of a range of sequences of occupational experiences

  • Learning from Bristol? Subscription

    28 JUL 2006 23:00

    Five years ago, the Bristol Royal Infirmary Inquiry — under the chairmanship of Sir Ian Kennedy — published its final report.

  • Praise for pharmacists Subscription

    28 JUL 2006 23:00

    A recent article (PJ, 3 June, p655 PDF (40K)), suggested that ibuprofen should be avoided in the treatment of strains and sprains because the inflammation experienced in the first few days was an important part of the healing

  • Important that pharmacists can seize opportunities Subscription

    28 JUL 2006 23:00

    As a retired Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education tutor, I recall the annoyance with which I looked at the list of non-attenders after a CPPE meeting, and at the amount of wasted food, paper etc. We were instructed to telephone non-attenders after meetings and try to ascertain the reasons for their absence.
