Hosted by the Pharmaceutics Section

Are you looking for ways to further engage your students in pharmacy calculations? Are you teaching calculations in the most effective ways based on recent pharmacy calculations research? This webinar will highlight findings from three recent research projects and include an overview of recent research in the field. An example of an application-based pharmacy calculations review activity which bridges the gap between didactic learning and pharmacy practice will also be provided. 


  1. Compare strategies for course design, delivery, and assessment in the field of pharmacy calculations.
  2. Discuss the effectiveness of ratio and proportion and dimensional analysis as problem solving techniques in pharmacy calculations.
  3. Design an application-based pharmacy calculations review module to bridge the gap between didactic and practice-based learning.
