The six qualities all excellent preregistration tutors should have


I have the privilege to be a pre reg tutor for several years and it's imperative to say that as a pre reg tutor, you can make or break a future pharmacists career, motivation, ethics and professionalism. You have the opportunity to be the applied theory to knowledge example of what they have learnt in the last four-five years into that 12 months of steep learning curve. I have always received great feedback from my pre reg, for on top of your six points above, I always insist they need to upskill their fingertip knowledge as their core basics daily skills but also know where to go to search for reliable answers effectively. I used to give them weekly cases of drug interactions or prescribing errors that I have encountered in my over ten years as a pharmacist. this will be their life long real life lessons that they will remember and definitely will encounter again in their professional life and they are always grateful and occasionally tell me that they have prevented another near miss because of the case studies I have given them have been repeated again.
