Embedding environmental sustainability into pharmacy curriculum

THE Department of Pharmacy at the University of Huddersfield is embedding environmental sustainability principles into the pharmacy degree curriculum and is urging other pharmacy educators to follow suit after the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) issued a declaration of climate and ecological emergency, last month.

Dr Alison Astles, Subject Leader in Pharmacy and a member of the University’s Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice Research Centre, has played a key role in the ‘greening’ the University’s MPharm curriculum with the aim of delivering future pharmacists who will be best placed and ready to play their part in fighting climate change.
