Abstract

In spite of the improved facilities which Tellier's discovery of the refrigerating process provided for the transportation of meat supplies from the great cattle raising areas of the world to the markets of Europe, a probable shortage of beef within the next dozen years is hinted at by some experts. In fact, these experts say that conditions point to a possible repetition of the crisis which confronted European statesmen, in 1866, when as a result of increased population, accompanied by increased average individual meat consumption, the margin between supplies and demand was reduced to dangerously narrow proportions. It was generally believed that Tellier's timely discovery had removed the menace of a meat famine in Europe practically for all time, but in the sanguine outlook of the moment insufficient allowance was made for the tremendous growth in the population of the New World.

Abstract

Purpose

Against a backdrop of concerns regarding the quality and equity of the final practice-based pre-registration training year, the purpose of this paper is to examine how robust and equitable current education and training arrangements in Great Britain are in preparing newly qualified pharmacists (NQPs) for practice.

Design/methodology/approach

In addition to considering relevant regulator, policy and research literature, this paper presents findings from a longitudinal qualitative study that tracked 20 pharmacy trainees and their tutors during pre-registration training and early registered practice. Trainees were interviewed four times over a 12-month period; tutors were interviewed twice. Semi-structured interviews explored learning and development, work environment and support received. Interview transcripts were analysed thematically using template analysis.

Findings

Currently, there are no requirements tor training pre-registration tutors, or for accreditation or quality assurance of training sites. Longitudinal interview findings showed that community trainees developed knowledge of over-the-counter and less complex, medicines whereas hospital trainees learnt about specialist medicines on ward rotations. Hospital trainees received support from a range of pharmacists, overseen by their tutor and other healthcare professionals. Community trainees generally worked within a small pharmacy team, closely supervised by their tutor, who was usually the sole pharmacist. NQPs were challenged by having full responsibility and accountability as independent practitioners, without formal support mechanisms.

Originality/value

The variability in trainee experience and exposure across settings raises concerns over the robustness and equity of pre-registration training. The lack of formal support mechanisms post-registration may pose risks to patient safety and pharmacists’ well-being.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to consider how effective training can address the issue of long‐winded and impenetrable business writing.

Design/methdology/approach

The paper reviews the key elements of the award‐winning Writing Dynamics approach and how it is being applied at The City of Edinburgh Council to improve the service this Council provides to its community.

Findings

Professional writers in particular are found to spend far more time in planning and editing than one might expect and there are some extremely practical techniques that can speed up and improve the writing process.

Practical implications

With people in business being bombarded by ever‐increasing amounts of information it has never been so important for people to get their message across clearly and persuasively. The conclusion that this article draws is that here is a method that is both extremely practical and beneficial for writers and readers alike.

Originality/value

This paper will be of particular value to training managers who want to know how a writing course can impact on their organisation's written communication as well as evidence of it having done so. It will also be of real interest to managers, marketeers and all staff who want to improve both the quality and speed of any business writing that is core to their work.

Abstract

Assesses the likely impact of European legislation on the conduct of pharmacy business in Britian and Germany. Examines the range of (proposed) legislation and inferences drawn about its likely impact; compares the differing national systems for the regulation of pharmacies and considers the “fit” between these systems and the European framework; addresses the possibilities for internationalization of the operations of pharmacies by opening in the other country. Concludes that current proposals may impact on British practices more severely. An apparent opportunity for expansion by British firms in Germany is shown to be limited by the presence of major drugstore chains in the German market, which are seen to have domestic advantages over incoming firms. Summarizes the legislation connected with the SEM and pharmacy in a Table showing anticipated consequences in the two countries.
