Research and evidence in pharmacy: engaging to improve patient care- May 15th 12-1pm

This tweet chat aims to explore why pharmacy professionals engage in research and evaluation activities and what impact this evidence has on policy and practice. The chat will provide a platform to share research, evidence and evaluation from pharmacy that has improved patient care and developed the profession. It will also examine what resources and support pharmacy professionals have found most useful in developing their projects and programmes of work. The chat will be asking:

  • Why do you engage in research, evidence & evaluation in pharmacy?
  • What examples are there of pharmacy evidence improving care and practice?
  • How do you get commissioners and policy makers to engage in your evidence?
  • What support is there to develop your research and evaluation skills in pharmacy?
