Learning Outcomes
The aim of this paper is for students to be able to produce a care plan. Pharmaceutical care plans are individualised/patient-focused treatment strategies developed by clinical pharmacists. A care plan involves the following processes:
  • Assessment of the patient
  • Formulation of a treatment option
  • Enacting this treatment option
  • Monitoring the patient's outcomes
  • Reflection on outcomes
  • Return to "assessment of the patient" and continue the cycle
