Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience (IPPE) – II (PHAR 469)

  • Occurs at the end of 3rd year in the months of May, June and July.
  • 160 hours
  • Course Coordinator: Neelam Dhaliwal

The IPPE-II practicum builds on IPPE-I. It is an introduction to direct patient care activities and includes activities associated with new and refill prescriptions, non-prescription requests, and disease management consultations for patients. The focus is on knowledge; comprehension and application of knowledge in simple patient care situations (1-3 disease states). IPPE II is a guided course with limited autonomy.

 

Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) – Community (PHAR 479)

  • Occurs in 4th year either in Term 1 (Sep/Oct/Nov) or Term 2 (Jan/Feb/Mar/Apr).
  • 320 hours
  • Course Coordinator: Paulo Tchen

The APPE practicums are experience-based integrated problem-solving courses designed to help the student become an active participant in providing direct patient care. The APPE practicums are not associated with significant drug distribution or dispensing activities. Under the direction of a pharmacist practice educator, the student is expected to focus on patient care. Students integrate (analyze, synthesize and evaluate) their knowledge of pharmacotherapy, disease states, dosage formulations and pharmacokinetics in developing and assessing therapeutic plans and in evaluating drug selection for patients. Students are exposed to various types of patients of all ages. Patients are required to be more complex than IPPE practicums and have thee to five plus disease states, one of which is identified as a prevalent chronic disease state in British Columbia. The APPE practicums are often interdisciplinary experiences.
