We are delighted to announce the launch of our new e-learning programme – NHS Discharge Medicines Service: improving outcomes for patients transferring care.
This programme aims to support community pharmacy professionals to deliver the NHS Discharge Medicines Service, which will launch on 15 February 2021.
It will also enable pharmacy professionals in other settings to understand how their role links to the patient’s journey through this service.
This e-learning includes interactive activities, quizzes, and animations to help you to understand the patient’s journey through the service. It also contains case studies to help you put your learning into practice.
NHS Discharge Medicines Service: improving outcomes for patients transferring care covers:
· why the NHS Discharge Medicines Service has been introduced
· what community pharmacy professionals need to know and do to deliver the service
· the role that pharmacy professionals in other sectors play in the patient’s journey
· the importance of good communication with patients as part of the service
· how community pharmacy teams link with other healthcare professionals to support safe and effective transfer of care for patients when they move from a care setting back into the community.
On completion of the programme, you should be able to outline the context of the NHS Discharge Medicines Service and discuss the benefits of the service with your patients. It will allow you to support person-centred consultations with patients referred through the service, to improve their understanding of their medicines
This programme is open to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pre-registration trainees and CPPE registrants.
