About the programme
This module has been designed to support pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in resolving issues that are commonly encountered in children. It covers issues such as altered drug handling, use of unlicensed or off-label drugs and difficult communication, all of which can make children a challenging patient group for the pharmacy team.
This programme will help learners consider how they can deal with such issues and ultimately maximise their input to the care of children. The focus is not on minor ailments but on the aspects of care that can be applied to any child, irrespective of medical condition or medication.
