Community pharmacy technician: advancing your role

Course description:

This programme aims to develop the knowledge, clinical skills and behaviours of pharmacy technicians working in community pharmacy to increase patient access to clinical services by widening the skill mix in community pharmacy teams.

The programme is made up of the following main components:

  • Four-month self-directed e-course comprised of six modules
  • Learning needs assessment (LNA) at start of programme
  • Initial meeting with an CPPE Education supervisor to discuss learning needs and form an action plan
  • Approximately 4-6 hours of learning per week
  • One face-to-face workshop on clinical assessment skills (CAS)
  • Workplace practice of CAS
  • Mandatory two-hour evening workshop for reflection in month four
  • Optional monthly one-hour peer support sessions

Once you have identified your own personal learning needs by completing the self-assessment framework, the different topic areas in this programme will support you to:

  1. Define your strengths and transferable skills to identify your learning needs and then create a personal development plan
  2. Describe how changing legislation will influence and affect your ongoing practice
  3. Apply the essential knowledge and skills required to deliver highly effective clinical services in community pharmacy.
  4. Apply relevant clinical therapeutics to person-centred consultations, ensuring that shared decision making is prioritised
  5. Demonstrate appropriate clinical assessment skills and apply them to your practice
  6. Develop your skills as a reflective practitioner and apply these to your practice
  7. Build a powerful personal and professional support network to support you during this programme and your ongoing practice
  8. Create a record of learning and application (RLA) to show competencies and achievements from the learning undertaken.
