The experts

We have a cross section of experts who are developing both the programme of therapy areas plus the curriculum and content for the tools and training.

Our philosophy is that the programme needs to be developed and delivered by clinical pharmacists for clinical pharmacists as part of an expert peer to peer network.

We also have diverse participants and skills as part of our i2i Network faculty.
