Standards to focus on in your reflective account

If you are completing your reflective account for the first time, the standards you should reflect on are:

  • standard 3 - pharmacy professionals must communicate effectively
  • standard 6 - pharmacy professionals must behave professionally 
  • standard 9 - pharmacy professionals must demonstrate leadership

We are currently producing more examples of reflective accounts for these standards.

Find out more about why we chose these standards in Regulate

Subjects you might want to learn about

In the course of our work we sometimes identify subjects in pharmacy practice which we think are important to members of the public. The areas we currently recommend learning in are:

  • Sodium valproate
  • Identifying the signs of domestic abuse and supporting survivors, families and perpetrators

These are not required learning subjects, but you might find it useful to consider them if they are relevant to your practice.
