Building on Bloom : A paradigm for teaching pharmacy law and ethics from the UK
Gallagher, C. T.
Law and ethics share many common characteristics while fulfilling separate functions in the regulation of pharmacists' behavior. In pharmacy education, Law and Ethics, as a subject, has traditionally been taught didactically as if it comprised solely a set of specific rules to be learned and obeyed. Although pharmacy law is largely that, ethics is a more cerebral subject that is amenable to several different teaching styles. Law, Ethics, and Professionalism is a module delivered as part of the Master of Pharmacy program at the University of Hertfordshire, UK. This module endeavors to use diverse teaching and learning styles from different levels of Bloom's eponymous taxonomy with a view to educating pharmacists who are more ethically aware.
