*Each team will be assigned a patient case by Week 2 after team memberships are finalised.
Your team’s task is to:-
1. Justify your role and the skills you have as a pharmacist that make you integral to the interdisciplinary team and care of this patient. Use the 8 employability domains to help you do this. Hint: what if a pharmacist was not part of the team, what would be missing in your patient’s care?
2. Outline and explain the roles and skills of other non-pharmacist healthcare professionals in your healthcare team that are integral to the care of this patient. Hint: what if a specific healthcare professional were not part of the team, what would be missing in your patient’s care?
3. Explain how collaboration between you, the pharmacist, and each non-pharmacist healthcare professional, results in them doing their job more effectively?
