Abstract

“Transforming Our Workforce” is intended to be a strategic document that sets out the need for transforming the pharmacy workforce, together with a description of the current evidence and use of a series of mechanisms, tools, policies and intelligence which can be collectively used for transformative national workforce development to meet the increasing challenges of healthcare provision with a fully functional and capable pharmacy workforce. The 2016 global report provides an overview on how FIPEd resources have been developed into country-specific resources necessary to address distinct population needs. Evaluating the impact of the implemented resources helps to identify if healthcare goals are met and offers guidance for future programmes. The report describes the drivers behind the development of each strategic tool as well as the perceived impact. In Part 3, a scheme of the evolution of Education within FIP is illustrated, as well as a timeline of the tools and platforms, providing an overview of what has been achieved so far. It also supports – as background evidence and as foundation for the future – the documents expected from the FIP Global Conference on Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Education: Global Vision, Professional Statements and Workforce Development Goals. From the 14 case studies presented in Part 4, a total of 26 references to FIPEd strategic tools and platforms are highlighted. Globally representing all six regions of the WHO, quality assurance and global competency frameworks have been the most widely used and together form half of the references. “Transforming Our Workforce” will support the launch and publication of global Workforce Development Goals in the latter half of 2016, following the first FIP Global Conference on Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Education to be held in Nanjing, China. “Transforming Our Workforce” contains detailed evidence-based descriptions of innovations, data and analysis of workforce development tools that have been used by countries to assist with transforming pharmacy education and creating a flexible and adaptable pharmacy workforce that can meet the significant challenges of new millennial healthcare provision.
