We are pleased to announce the launch of our new e-learning programme - Atrial fibrillation detection in community pharmacy: what you need to become service ready.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common heart condition that causes an irregular heart rate, which is often abnormally fast. The condition can be difficult to diagnose as it can be asymptomatic, but AF can cause problems such as dizziness, shortness of breath and an increased risk of stroke.
Our Atrial fibrillation detection programme will equip pharmacy professionals with the knowledge of current AF services available in community pharmacy. The programme also considers what is needed to be able to carry out a safe and effective AF detection service.
On completion of the programme, pharmacy professionals will have developed an action plan to become service ready.
The e-learning programme is an interactive, self-study resource that is intended to take around two hours of study time. Find out more and access the programme by clicking here.
