The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has published the new COVID-19 care homes training resource to support pharmacists and pharmacy technicians newly deployed to care home settings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Working in care homes during the pandemic can be hugely challenging for those with experience, let alone those new to the role. This is why, alongside other expert groups, CPPE has helped develop the new training resource to support the delivery of safe and effective patient care with confidence.
It covers clinical reviews, medicines supply, structured medication reviews and medicines information. The resource includes a self-assessment knowledge and capability guide, targeted learning using a range of resources and worked case studies which show how to apply knowledge in practice. It also provides tools for reflection, peer support and feedback.
Access to the RPS COVID-19 learning resources is free during the pandemic for the entire pharmacy profession, through registering on: www.rpharms.com or using RPS membership details.
