The Declaration of Competence (DoC) framework for Vaccination services has been updated in time for the influenza season.
The learning and assessment in the DoC has been reviewed and the CPPE Immunisation programme has been withdrawn and replaced with key modules from e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) on Flu Immunisation. The information linked to the Green Book still remains. This aligns pharmacists' training with that of other healthcare professionals.
The requirement to revisit and complete your DoC every two years remains the same, so those who completed the DoC last year do not need to complete it again this year in light of this change.
However, we would recommend that you visit the e-LfH modules included in the updated Vaccination DoC (01- Core knowledge and 02- Inactivated Flu vaccines) to ensure you are up to date for this season's vaccination programme. This could be included as part of your annual update training.
