We have launched a new learning campaign, Supporting older people, which began on 11 May 2015. During this campaign we will post a new distance learning programme, Older people, to you and set you six challenges to get you thinking about how you can support older people in your practice.
We all need to consider the changes that come with ageing and the impact these have on health, and think about the care we give to older people. Pharmacy professionals are ideally placed to offer support and make a positive difference to older people.
From 11 May 2015 we will set you a challenge a week for six weeks. Look out for our emails and posts on Facebook and Twitter. Let us know what you are doing by posting your feedback on our social media pages. Download a PDF of the Supporting older people leaflet to find out what the challenges will be.
We have developed a new distance learning programme entitled Older people. We will be posting this programme and details of our learning campaign to you in May 2015. It will give you a comprehensive overview of the care of older people and the opportunity to look at how you can use a patient-centred approach when providing support. Look out for this programme in May.
