LGBT Foundation – Pride in Practice – Pharmacy Resource

Pride in Pharmacy, an interactive online resource that aims to develop knowledge and confidence around LGBTQ+ inclusivity in community pharmacy. Pride in Pharmacy is a deck of Google Slides comprising short modules for self-directed – or team-based – learning about key themes in LGBTQ+ primary care. We are confident that the resource addresses many of the issues raised during our early conversations with you, and will therefore be of interest and use to community pharmacy teams across the UK!
