The Office of Experiential Education (OEE) Student Toolbox for Practicums is an initiative created to support UBC student pharmacists while on practicum. Data from our research suggested that students would benefit from a searchable, centralized and mobile-friendly online site to access practice resources and clinical guidelines during patient care activities. In collaboration with the pharmacy Educational Technology and Learning Designs team and The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences an online resource was created.
