Over the years, health education has undergone curricular changes through specific legislation that guide higher education in Brazil. Pharmaceutical education has approached the health care axis, especially with the regulation of its clinical assignments defined by Resolution nº 585 of 2013 of the Federal Council of Pharmacy and the approval of the National Curriculum Guidelines of pharmacy courses in 2017 stimulated by the international policies promoted by the International Pharmacy Federation, World Health Organization and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Faced with these transformations, the evaluations are presented as an important strategy to measure the advances and barriers to be overcome, for the promotion of a clinical teaching based on competencies. having regard to the context of educational and professional transformations in the pharmaceutical profession, this study aims to develop and validate an instrument for evaluating the educational knowledge and attitudes of teaching pharmacists, related to clinical services. To this end, we opted for a descriptive study of the quali- quantitative approach, structured in three parts: 1) development of the instrument; 2) content validation through the Delphi method and; 3) evaluation of the internal consistency of the questionnaire. The study sample was obtained by applying the snowball technique, involving 55 participants. The questionnaire was validated after four Delphi rounds to obtain consensus among the panelists. The instrument version was completed with 59 items, divided into three domains: "Profissiographic profile", "knowledge" and "attitudes". The application of the instrument, in a pilot test, presented reliability of 0.78 in the "knowledge" section, and 0.71 in the "attitudes" section. Thus, it is concluded that the instrument developed was considered valid in terms of its content and reliable in relation to the degree to which the measurements are free of random errors.
