Bath University to investigate supplementary prescribing
The University of Bath has been awarded a Pharmacy Practice Research Trust grant to investigate supplementary prescribing.
The research will explore the value of supplementary prescribing for patients and pharmacists. It will examine how supplementary prescribing will change the care of patients, and practice and job satisfaction for pharmacists. It also aims to investigate which factors contribute to successful and unsuccessful practice in supplementary prescribing.
Marjorie Weiss, a senior lecturer at the department of pharmacy and pharmacology, will lead the research. “The university is delighted to receive this grant as it complements our ongoing interest in prescribing research issues and our desire to continually enhance our teaching in supplementary prescribing,” she said.
The £50,000 grant was sponsored by Boots The Chemists. The Pharmacy Practice Research Trust is managed by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
