HSCCP: 2021-24 Precepting Pearls: Incorporating Wellness into IPPE and APPE Rotations Newsletter

Evidence shows that depression, anxiety, burnout, stress, and similar wellness issues are prevalent among pharmacy students. Numerous stressors like academics, finances, family relationships, etc. might lead to wellness issues mentioned earlier. Struggles with one’s own wellness might affect pharmacy students from understanding their patients and their learning experiences as well. Hence, it is necessary for pharmacy preceptors to make an effort in identifying the possible stressors of students and helping them manage those stressors. By doing so, preceptors can play an important role in promoting the wellness of their students and in long run can influence patient care and patient health outcomes.

The College of Pharmacy at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth presents this learning activity for pharmacy preceptors.
