APPEL (Affiliation for Pharmacy Practice Experiential Learning) is now seeking expressions of interest from pharmacists in ALL practice settings who would like to facilitate an experiential learning placement for a 4th year pharmacy student next year.
Pharmacy students in Ireland now undertake a 5-year integrated masters programme to become qualified pharmacists. Key to this new programme are the experiential learning placements that students undertake throughout the course. In the 4th year of their studies, students have the opportunity to put their academic knowledge into practice in community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, industry, academic, regulatory, and other practice settings.
There are 43 industry based placements (25%) for period August-December 2020. Most of these placements are based in Dublin and Cork but there are also placements in Galway, Kildare, Sligo, Tipperary and Waterford.
Pharmacists who have previously facilitated APPEL placements have found the experience enjoyable and rewarding. In surveys, 90% of pharmacists said they would recommend facilitating a placement to other pharmacists. The advantages of facilitating an APPEL placement include:
The next 4th-year placements will run from the 27th of August to the 17th of December 2021. The deadline to confirm your interest in offering placements is the 1st of November 2020. You can do this by clicking on the link below: https://forms.gle/yxLf3D16P9GHTuzN6

PIER in collaboration with EIPG will co-host a webinar 'Consultation on the draft Annex 21: Importation of medicinal products, of the EudraLex Volume 4' on Wed 5th August 2020 at 4pm.
Overview of Webinar
The European Commission has announced a targeted stakeholders’ consultation on the draft Annex 21: Importation of medicinal products, of the EudraLex Volume 4. This new Annex, in which the Qualified Person (QP) has a key role, and which has been under discussion for a long time, provides guidance for the interpretation of the principles and guidelines of GMP for both human and veterinary medicinal products. The document intends to bring clarity to areas which have been unclear for some time, and the speaker will discuss the background to the Annex, the challenges which have existed within the EU Regulatory Framework, and how the proposed Annex may or may not address these challenges. The speaker will suggest potential areas of concern, and how delegates may wish to communicate these to the European Commission both via the European Commission’s own communication process, and through the participation of their member organisations in the consultation process within the European Industrial Pharmacists Group.
By the end of this presentation, you will:
