Devon Training Hub (TH) are providing a FREE three day course
centered around acute assessment of minor illness in a range of disease areas,
relevant for a whole spectrum of pharmacy practice. This course represents a
pick and mix package that you can tailor to your own needs and level of
pharmacy practice - the package starts with the basic vital signs, building on
and supporting CPPE training centered around Sepsis in the community pharmacy
quality payments scheme. Following on from this, a range of different topics
are covered, which could potentially pitch up to your community pharmacy in a
CPCS referral or to a GP practice in a clinical pharmacist appointment. These
training days seek to provide a safe space to build confidence around basic
examination skills, which you can take away and apply to your daily practice.
Each day is self-contained and can be attended without prior preparation in
isolation, or all three together as a basic minor illness and examinations
suite of training.
