Primary care essentials e-course

Course description:

This Primary care essentials e-course is a standalone module. However, it also forms part of the Primary care pharmacy education pathway which is the training for pharmacy professionals with roles in primary care networks (PCN). You can access the pathway here.

The aim of this e-course is to introduce the fundamentals of new roles in primary care for those who are not eligible for the Primary care pharmacy education pathway.

This e-course will cover NHS structure and primary care, introduction to local general practice and care homes, medicines optimisation, medication review, prescribing and repeat prescribing, prescribing data, clinical information technology systems, audits, evidence-based use of medicines, working with the multidisciplinary team and person-centred professionalism.

By working through the activities in each unit and focusing on the tasks relating to your role, you will develop knowledge, skills, experience, and behaviours to support you in a role in primary care.

We have structured the programme into ten learning units and we estimate that you will probably need to commit between eight to ten hours of learning per unit to gain maximum benefit from the programme.

We rely on a small team and user feedback to keep Pharmacy Courses running. Notice something looks odd? Let us know!
