It has been an exceptionally dynamic period for Meducate Academy, marking our busiest year to date. The thriving momentum is not only a cause for celebration within the company but also for the dedicated professionals collaborating with us. Over the past months, our experts have been actively sharing their wealth of knowledge with a diverse group of students, ranging from Physician Associates, Nurses, and Medical Students to recently added Pharmacists.
In the context of our recent endeavours, it is noteworthy to highlight the resounding success we experienced at The Pharmacy Show held at the NEC. The positive response was so overwhelming that we have been invited to be educational partners once again in 2024, with an even larger venue for our Practical, Clinical, and Consultation Forum. This time, the forum unfolded in a 30-seater theatre space right in the heart of the NEC, as captured in the attached video.
The Pharmacy Show, held at the NEC Birmingham is a hallmark event in the pharmaceutical landscape and has become a resounding success for us, prompting our invitation to serve as educational partners once again in 2024. The overwhelming response has necessitated a move to an even grander venue to accommodate our expanding Practical, Clinical, and Consultation Forum.
In the previous edition, our Forum unfolded within the dynamic ambience of a 30-seater theatre nestled at the heart of the NEC, as vividly captured in the attached video. The success of this endeavour has propelled us to secure an even larger space for the upcoming event, ensuring an immersive and enriching experience for all participants.
Speaking of success, our significant achievements at The Pharmacy Show underscore its position as the UK’s foremost provider of education and communication for community pharmacists. Boasting a legacy of over 40 years, The Pharmacy Show is synonymous with industry excellence and is celebrated for its influential publications such as Pharmacy Magazine, Training Matters, P3Pharmacy, Independent Community Pharmacists, and Counterintelligence Plus.
Notably, The Pharmacy Show extends its reach into the digital realm through The Pharmacy Network (TPN), a robust platform with a staggering 100,000 registered individuals. Participating in this show is not just a presence; it is a testament to the honour bestowed upon us as contributors to a community that values knowledge dissemination and professional development. As we gear up for the 2024 edition, the prospect of engaging with a broader audience and contributing to the growth of the pharmaceutical landscape fills us with anticipation and pride.
Our Consultation and Clinical Skills Workshops garnered immense interest, with some sessions even selling out. The feedback received from participants was outstanding, leading to invitations to conduct workshops at the BPSA Eastern Region conference at Nottingham University, where student feedback was similarly commendable.
A notable attendee at The Pharmacy Show was Ruth Edwards, the Head of the Pharmacy School, with whom we have established a working relationship at Wolverhampton University School of Pharmacy. This collaboration extends to assisting in their Undergraduate program and contributing to their OSCEs in the upcoming year.
Our involvement in Clinical and Consultation skills training aligns with the recent government directive mandating the upskilling of Pharmacists from 2024 onward. This initiative has already commenced at the University of Birmingham and Wolverhampton University, and we are enthusiastic about sustaining these relationships into the future.
A significant project on our agenda involves a partnership with Cliniskills, providing Clinical Examination Skills Training for Community Pharmacists. This fully funded, free-to-access resource, tailored for community pharmacists, aims to enhance their ability to assess patients, treat common conditions, and identify high-risk presentations. The positive reception at venues in Birmingham and Bristol has us eagerly anticipating future sessions in Manchester and Slough.
A substantial portion of our work involves collaboration with Physician Associates at Chester University, led by James Ennis. The continuous growth of our relationship with students is a testament to the dedication of the teaching team, which remained unwavering even throughout the challenges posed by the pandemic.
While we bid farewell to the PA program at Wolverhampton University, we celebrate the ongoing collaborations with various institutions, leading to new projects and partnerships. Noteworthy among these is our involvement with Dr Gareth Nye at Chester University, who teaches Bio-med students, and our support for the new Medical School at Chester, actively recruiting students for their MBChB course.
Our commitment to supporting diverse medical education extends to specialized areas, such as Obs and Gynae and Male Intimate Examinations. A recent project at Hastings House GP practice showcased our expertise, benefiting Paramedics, Pharmacists, and a Physician Associate keen on keeping their skills up to date.
A special mention goes to University College Birmingham, where we were invited by the Head of School Marina Kendrick to conduct a communication and consultation skills workshop with Undergraduate Nurses. The engaged participation of students made for a memorable and productive day.
As the year draws to a close, we express our gratitude to our dedicated team of ACEs, whose belief and commitment have been instrumental in Meducate Academy’s success. We extend our thanks to the students who have actively contributed to refining our skills and to our valued customers, both new and old.
As we look forward to the new year, we anticipate exciting developments, including undisclosed projects set to impact Pharmacy in 2024. Stay tuned for more information in January 2024, and here’s to another year of success and growth. Wishing you all a Happy New Year, and let’s do it again in 2024!
