We are delighted to announce that April is the launch of our new Asthma focal point workshops.
Asthma is a common lung condition that affects people of all ages and causes occasional breathing difficulties. In the UK, 5.4 million people are currently receiving treatment for asthma. The respiratory symptoms of asthma include wheeziness, breathlessness and coughing, which can be controlled with treatments.
The face-to-face workshops aim to help pharmacy professionals consider the support they can offer to people who have asthma, including monitoring, identification of triggers and holistic care. On completion of the programme, learners will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to enable people to self-manage their asthma with a personalised asthma action plan.
The programme will also provide the opportunity for learners to apply medicines optimisation principles in the context of asthma treatment and practise using person-centred communication skills through role play.
Focal point programmes have been developed to provide pharmacy professionals working in primary care and in the community with short, clinically focused learning sessions.
When you book onto this workshop you will be able to access the resources that you need to complete your learning. If there is a pre-workshop book associated with your workshop, then this will be sent to you in the post and you will also be able to download it in PDF form.
The workshops will take place in the evening and last for approximately one and three quarter hours. Click here for more information and to book a place on an Asthma focal point workshop near you.
