Windhoek, Namibia. August 2015 - August 2018.
In an ongoing project funded by the Center for Disease Control under the direction of the University of Namibia School of Pharmacy, we are transforming written UNAM curriculum into open-source digital materials.
ARV: Stavudine is a series that is going to be available for public use. As counterfeit HIV medicine cases increase, there is a recognized need that all pharmacists in Namibia should be equipped with the knowledge of how to test the authenticity of the drugs prior to patient administration. Our series will be published through the online KuraCloud campus and will be made available to the public.
“A. is for Aspirin,” is a video series that was translated from a written pharmacy lab. It is already worked into the first-year Pharmacy School curriculum, and student evaluations are completed. We have investigated the learning effectiveness in a submitted publication to the Journal of Chemical Education, status pending.
This page is just previewing the materials. The University of Namibia is finalizing the publication with KuraCloud for final online presentation.
