Our e-learning programme Transfer of care: supporting patients into and out of hospital considers why transfer of care needs to improve, what a good transfer-of-care process for information about medicines should look like and the actions pharmacy professionals need to take to make this happen. It includes links to key resources and useful tools to help you facilitate safe and effective transfer of care.
Keeping patients safe when they transfer between providers and making sure they are taking the right medicines is vital to their care and protection – pharmacy professionals can play a key role in the safe and accurate transfer of information about medicines. We have a number of programmes that incorporate discharge or a change to care setting within the learning. See the listing below for more information about these programmes.
Of course, governance in clinical pharmacy is about more than just transfer of care. There are a number of other programmes that might help you to assure the governance of your practice.

We recognise that people have different learning needs. Some of our programmes contain core learning while others deliver more complex learning that is only required to support certain roles. We have three categories of learning (1,2,3) and have allocated each programme to an appropriate category.
Core learning. Builds on limited knowledge. Some background reading may be required.
Application of knowledge. Assumes prior learning.
Supporting specialisms. We may not be the provider and will signpost you to other learning providers.
Learning programmes from other providers which complement your learning.
