          Abstract

          The Ministry of Health and Family Planning of the People’s Republic of China issued a mandate to all hospitals to implement clinical pharmacy services by 2020. Implementation of clinical pharmacy services to provide pharmaceutical care is a priority. The Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University in collaboration with the University of Alberta implemented a structured train-the-trainer program to train pharmacists to provide direct patient care in collaboration with physicians, to teach/mentor other pharmacists and students from Hunan province, and to conduct clinical pharmacy research. Following implementation of the program, the pharmacy department increased the number of clinical pharmacists, expanded the clinical pharmacy services, made changes to hospital policies, and received a financial award of five million renminbi (one million Canadian dollars) to support the department.

          Significant statement: This is the first clinical pharmacy train-the-trainer program in China in collaboration with a university in Canada teaching clinical pharmacists how to provide direct patient care and to conduct clinical research. The program was well accepted by the hospital staff and administration. As a result of the changes implemented, the hospital was ranked as having the third best clinical pharmacy department in China.

          Implementation of a novel train-the-trainer program for pharmacists in China

           Hoan Banh (corresponding) ,  Andrew Cave (2016)
          Clinical pharmacy services in North American are well implemented both in community pharmacies and in hospital pharmacies. In 2009 the Chinese government mandated the implementation of clinical pharmacy services in all secondary and tertiary hospitals by 2020. The mandate would require adequately trained clinical pharmacists. However, most pharmacy education programs in China have not yet incorporated clinical pharmacy into their curricula. Many pharmacists have been sent to countries, including the United States and Canada, to receive clinical pharmacy training. Because of different health care systems, medical team dynamics, and language barriers, it became difficult for the returning pharmacists to apply the skills gained from this type of training. As a result, the Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University initiated an international academic–run train-the-trainer program. The objectives are to provide adequate training for pharmacists to provide pharmaceutical care to patients, conduct clinical pharmacy–related research, and engage in scholarly activities. After evaluation of local readiness, the course commenced in 2014, and to date four trainers have received personalized one-on-one training by an advanced pharmacist with 15 years of experience of delivering similar curricula in North America. We present the initial process evaluation and learning that will contribute to the development of clinical pharmacy courses at Central South University.
