A local community pharmacist who has completed the training course said:

“I have enjoyed the course and found it easy to work through.  On average I think each section takes about 2 hours, to watch the video, access the suggested learning resources, and make notes.  But it has also highlighted areas for further study.  I like the fact that it is not just written material, and it is easier to sit and watch a video at the end of a long day compared to reading something.  You do not have to complete sections in the order given, so choose which topic you want to study first.
“The support pack, which arrived after I started the course, is also useful.  It helps to have a hard copy of the learning resources, and a structured approach to written notes.
“It is highly relevant for anyone working in community pharmacy, and has helped me to take a more structured approach to consultations with customers. The section on clinical assessment and the idea of a “traffic light system” was new to me and very helpful.  After studying the course I think will be more confident in identifying red flag symptoms and signposting patients to A&E if necessary.
“I would definitely recommend the course.  Everyone, newly qualified or experienced, will gain something.  Some of the learning resources have been very helpful.  I do use the tools and knowledge gained on a daily basis. It is well worth taking the time to complete.”
