Activity Description:

The absence of diversity in pharmacy education and practice can have profound emotional, professional, and patient-care implications. For pharmacy students, the emotional toll of being in an environment with limited diversity can manifest as feelings of isolation and an inability to fully relate to the experiences of a diverse patient population. This can create emotional barriers to effective learning and empathy development. In their professional careers, pharmacists who have not been exposed to diverse perspectives may struggle to connect with and understand the unique needs of patients from various backgrounds. This can lead to emotional challenges for pharmacists as they navigate patient interactions and aim to provide the highest level of care. Ultimately, the emotional impact of this lack of diversity reverberates into patient care, as patients may not receive the culturally competent and emotionally supportive healthcare they deserve. Embracing diversity in pharmacy education and practice is crucial not only for the emotional well-being of students and pharmacists but also for enhancing the quality of care provided to patients.

Learning Objectives:

Pharmacists: 

  1. Define diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  2. Examine how lack of diversity, equity and inclusion impact students, pharmacists, and patients.
  3. Discuss strategies for improvement and how to incorporate in practice.

Pharmacy Technicians:

  1. Define diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  2. Examine the racial demographics of pharmacy technicians and how diversity, equity and inclusion impacts pharmacy technicians and the care provided to their patients.
