Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With growing pressures on student placement sites, and pressure from our learners to contemporise our teaching approach, we are now seeing pharmacy professional bodies around the globe to embrace simulation technology as a key component of future training strategies. This coincides with a period of immense potential, as we see games technology, web-based technology, and mobile devices greatly expanding in terms of their accessibility and their capabilities, while reducing in cost.

To celebrate and stimulate this progress, we invite the submission of research papers that explore the use of simulation technology in pharmacy training.
