Community pharmacists wanting to undertake research relating to community pharmacy practice are being invited to apply for a £10,000 bursary. Applications for the National Pharmacy Association Health Education Foundation need to be submitted by June 30.

The NPA’s HEF was established in 1989 “to advance public education in the prevention and proper treatment of disease and ill health.” A bursary has been made annually for the past six years and has been used by successful applicants to fund a range of projects in community pharmacy research.

These have included “evaluating the role of community pharmacy in preventing hospital admissions, and measuring the impact of a community pharmacy health screening programme on a local cardio health scheme,” said the NPA.

It will judge applications against specific criteria:

  • the contribution to developing pharmacy research capability
  • suitability of training identified
  • supervision/support of arrangements
  • the appropriateness of the research area/question identified.

“The winning applicant will be notified in July 2016 and will be expected to present findings to the Panel no later than December 2017.
