Workshop duration: 30 minutes
Connect2Pharma ran training workshops throughout the Pharmacy Show on Strep A Sore Throat Test and Treat Service. The training workshops were delivered by professionals from the manufacturers of the OSOM® Strep A kits - Sekisui.
The hands on training included the following elements:
- All pharmacists received detailed explanation of Strep A and related conditions
- Every pharmacist received instruction on how to collect a sample via a throat swab
- Everyone completed a rapid antigen test
- And interpreted the results.
At the end of the training all pharmacists completed a short quiz and receive a certificate of competence. There also was the opportunity to ask any questions and also a place where tests could be purchased.
All orders placed specifically at the Pharmacy show came with free marketing material, including posters and leaflets.
There also were people to talk to about your marketing strategy for the campaign. All pharmacies were able to leave the Pharmacy Show with everything they needed to implement the service which will create alternative revenue streams.
