Call for Nominations for the RPS Pharmaceutical Science Expert Advisory Panel

As a result of recent resignations, there are now vacancies on the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s (RPS) Pharmaceutical Science Expert Advisory Panel (PSEAP). Applicants wishing to apply for a position on the PSEAP should complete the nomination form in the PSEAP Call for Nominations 2016 document (see attached supplementary information) and submit this together with a detailed CV and a supporting statement. Both self-nominations and those from third parties with the consent of nominee will be accepted. All nomination materials must be submitted by 5pm on 28 February 2016.

The PSEAP, which was established in 2010, draws from the breadth of academic, clinical, industrial, community and regulatory pharmacy settings. It provides advice and guidance to the RPS and thereby to the pharmacy profession as a whole on emergent issues in science and research. The PSEAP informs RPS policy on issues of interest to the profession and the public and provides a view on scientific strategy, scientific assessment and review, and leadership and advocacy.

In May 2014, the ‘New medicines, better medicines, better use of medicines’ guide was published. This guide was developed by the PSEAP and summarises the important role of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists in the development and use of medicines. Seven recommendations are included in the guide. The RPS is leading on four of these: the safe use of medicines; antimicrobials; new technologies; and increasing the evidence base for pharmacy. The current work plan of the PSEAP is structured around these four areas.
