Background: One hundred and thirty (130) pharmacy students from the University of Copenhagen were doing their pharmacy internship in community pharmacy. Here they are to acquire knowledge of, as well as skills and competencies in, areas such as organisation, leadership, ethics, economy, patient counselling, patient safety, cooperation etc. The COVID-19 pandemic hit the entire world and created an extra steep learning curve for the interns. And why not try and combine the two: the pharmacy internship learning and the COVID-19 crisis? It is important to explore how pharmacies manage their customary and newly emerging roles during the COVID-19 outbreak. Purpose(s): The purpose of the study is to reveal how the COVID-19 pandemic influences pharmacy organisation, leadership, ethics, economy, patient counselling, patient safety, and cooperation seen through the eyes of the pharmacy interns. Method(s): A two-page long questionnaire on how COVID-19 influences the above mentioned areas was uploaded to the internship webpage, hopefully inspiring the interns, who were tasked with handing in a nine-page long report as part of their exam. A content analysis of the reports will be done. Result(s): Since the interns hand in their reports by June 19 2020, no results are available yet. If all interns write about COVID-19 in their report, though, more than 1,000 pages on their COVID-19 experiences will exist. Answers with the most insightful learning potential for pharmacy practice globally will be presented and discussed. Conclusion(s): Having successfully carried out pharmacy internship-based research for more than 20 years in Denmark, we are convinced that the study will reveal useful results.

This science communication case study analyzes an online international co-taught course where students practiced blog article conceptualization and production covering a wide variety of science and technology related issues. Students had an international experience during the COVID-19 pandemic, and gained experience in communicating science and technology to intercultural audiences. Through student article reviews, course evaluations and project reflections students demonstrated an adoption of new science communication skills and some key examples of changing perspective on issues such as environment and technology. They also enjoyed the opportunity to learn about new cultures, reflect on their own, and bond over life experiences. Copyright © 2022 van Kempen, Kristiansen and Feldpausch-Parker.

This study examines how newspapers in six countries frame the COVID-19 pandemic. The quantitative content analysis shows that most articles were written with a “consequence” or a “collective action” frame and portrayed the pandemic in a social and national context. Journalists used thematic and loss frames more often than episodic and gain frames. Framing differed between countries. Pakistani articles had a social justice perspective. South Korean and South African journalists employed the collective action frame more than other countries. German articles used gain more than loss frames. South Korean and Argentinian journalists used the individual action frame the least and focused stronger on the future than journalists in other countries. U.S. articles used the uncertainty frame more than articles from other countries. These differences might help understand the different approaches countries take in trying to manage the spread of the virus and give some insights into how people across the world take different actions. © 2022 (Shumaila J.
