Organised by the FIP Expert Group on Ethics, in collaboration with FIP’s Hospital Pharmacy Section, FIPEd and the YPG
Ethical competency is a foundational element of preparing generations of pharmacists to practise in society. However, many faculties and institutions do not dedicate sufficient resources and time to training in ethical competency. Ethical competency is composed of ethical awareness and sensitivity, as well as ethical decision-making skills. Developing moral reasoning capabilities and expertise in ethical decision-making based on ethical competency can be challenging. A combination of simulation teaching pedagogy, experience, story-telling and enhanced communication skills all play an important part of building this complex competency. This session will introduce the concept of ethical competency to delegates, and further engage them in techniques tried and tested in training pharmacy students and practitioners in ethical competency.
