This is just a trial in case using a wiki would be useful for helping with certain aspects of the Pharmacy course. I was thinking mostly along the lines of counselling, as it was a major assessment that people really wanted information on, so maybe a site where people could add counselling points and other related info would be really useful.

Click 'Recent Changes' on the left to find out what has happened recently on the site :) Also clicking the 'Discussion' tab will display the most recent discussions.


Here I'll mention anything new to the website that you may not have been aware of (plus any news if that happens to be the case)

Recent additions:

- Set up a page for potential questions for the AP401 exam (similar to the MCBT301 fake exam), now with answers! (almost completely finished!)
I have constructed a table of all the primary dressings used in Wound Care
- The obligatory AP401 Conditions and Treatments document, with dermatology currently completed (AP301 and AP400 versions are available)
- Answering the sample questions from last year (including cancer, CAMs, dermatology, incontinence, and pharmacy regulation)
- I am slowly adding notes on a number of AP401 topics based on key points from last year
- The three PP Assessment Scenarios have been uploaded (although they are quite bare since I did the third case)
- AP401 Lecture Checklist has been uploaded (let me know if there are any lectures that I missed out on)
- 3rd Year Lectures are now available (expect to download some very large files)

To do list:
- Set up a traineeship year section (this won't be happening for a while though)
