This is an International Arts in Pharmacy Special Interest Group (SIG) for pharmacy and other practitioners, educators, researchers, students, patients, carers, and others interested to imbed creative thinking into pharmacy in the UK and globally. Artists and creative practitioners are very welcome.

The International Arts in Pharmacy SIG aims to:

  • Create an exciting platform to share new possibilities for pharmacy across diverse health and social care communities.
  • Stimulate the use of creative research methodologies to produce new forms of knowledge and evidence for policy and practice.
  • Innovative creative education for pharmacy.

We hold online events to share experiences of research, education, and practice to grow arts in pharmacy, such as social prescribing. The group will share news of creative arts-health events, resources, conferences, publications, and other outputs.
