The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the teaching and learning approach at higher education institutions to mainly online learning platforms. However, education addressing pharmacy practice must incorporate experiential learning components including hands-on workshops and laboratory practicals to hone students’ skills in cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains. The remedial sessions for this course have successfully been conducted at Kulliyyah of Pharmacy which included three activities: Medication Trolley, Aseptic technique practical (ampoule breaking, vial reconstitution, sterile product preparation), and Medication Devices counselling.
Students have been provided all the materials and briefing for all activities eg. counselling guidelines, lab manual, demonstration videos etc. for self-study beforehand. Students were able to demonstrate good skills by following strict standard operating procedure (SOP) approved by the university. Staff have been dedicated in preparing for the sessions and monitoring the activities. Students provided feedbacks indicating that the sessions were beneficial for their learning with exposure to actual activities and processes involved in pharmacy services.
