This workbook has been designed as an information and training resource to supplement a placement in mental health for pre-registration pharmacists, trainee pharmacy technicians and other healthcare professionals who have limited experience in the field.
It guides you through different topics including depression, schizophrenia, dementias but also includes forensics and eating disorders. Each section will have information for you to read then varying tasks, questions and work based activities to complete to put your learning into practice and to complement any placements in a mental health trust, which you can choose to undertake depending on your learning needs.
We estimate this learning will take you 15 hours to complete. If you are looking to include some of the optional tasks, for example shadowing a community psychiatric nurse or delivering a case presentation, the programme may take you longer.
Please note: This workbook was produced by the Midlands Mental Health Clinical Pharmacists Network and is approved by the College of Mental Health Pharmacy. It is not reviewed by CPPE as part of our programme guardian process.
