Flu Jab Training at The Pharmacy Show
This 1-hour workshop session is combined with comprehensive online learning to ensure that pharmacists that attend are well prepared to deliver the 2018/2019 NHS flu vaccines. Private PGDs are also covered as part of the training and for a small fee pharmacists can purchase a private flu PGD too.
The course this year has been updated to meet the revised 2018 core curriculum and
standards specified by the Public Health Agency and Public Health England. It also covers the important new vaccines to be used in 2018/2019. It is delivered through pre and post workshop online learning, to allow delegates access to all the information they will need to deliver the NHS service and if required a private flu vaccination service also. Places at the workshops are limited, and can be booked online for a reduced fee from only £79 (+vat) by visiting the website: www. PharmacyShow.FluJabTraining.co.uk
The workshop sessions will be running throughout the two days of the show - Booking early will ensure a reduced fee and a guaranteed place for you at your choice of workshop session. However, you can still attend the workshop on the day without reserving a place – simply turn up at the training room (Flu Jab Training by Rx Advisor) and ask the organiser if there are any spaces available.
It is an NHS PGD requirement that all pharmacists that provide the flu vaccination service receive face-to-face training at least every three years. For 2018 there are some important changes to the vaccines and to the standards of training too – Our course will cover all important information.
Our course includes practical injection technique training, practical training for undertaking basic life support, management of anaphylactic reactions, information about the NHS service specification and Patient Group Direction.
Pharmacists will receive information and website links to all of the materials they will need to deliver a robust NHS service. Feedback from previous delegates on our training has been excellent:
“The Flu training was very informative and the practical sessions were the most beneficial. In particular, the trainer was brilliant!” Kassim Kurji Pharmacist Peterborough) “I found the course material succinct. For most Pharmacists who’ve offered the service for >3 years, this is a perfect refresher. I like the link to the competency Declaration”. Naresh Chauhan (Pharmacist Nottingham)
