Each course takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete. The programme is for all staff working in Community Pharmacy, from pharmacists to front-of-shop staff.
Commenting on the decision to make the course available without charge to the wider pharmacy community, co-founder of 4Front Pharmacy Online, David McLean, said “In the absence of an available vaccine, our best defence against the spread of infection is to educate all employees with accurate information about the disease, proven methods to prevent infection, and link this to the latest national advice. This is the right thing to do at the right time – for pharmacies, their staff and their customers.”
Co-Founder Rachel Dungan MPSI added: “While pharmacy staff are already highly competent and well-trained with regard to infections, the emergence of COVID-19 has generated unprecedented levels of queries and understandable concern among the general public – the need for accurate, comprehensive communication, therefore, is critical. Over the coming days, we will be looking at the feasibility of extending the course to other groups in the community".
Our goal is that EVERY member of the pharmacy team has received our Certified Coronavirus COVID-19 Training within the next 7 days. We need your help in spreading the word.
Please share this invitation (www.4FrontPharmacy.ie) with everyone you know who works in pharmacy.
Keep safe and well
