Bid to boost pharmacy flu vax
The Pharmacy Guild has launched a course to encourage the uptake of flu vaccination in pharmacies.
The online course covers:
- Pathophysiology and incidence and associated morbidity and mortality rates.
- Public health benefits of vaccination and the role of herd immunity.
- At risk patients and those eligible to receive the vaccine under the National Immunisation Program.
- Myths and arguments against vaccination and how pharmacists can overcome these barriers.
The course attracts CPD points: one group 1 credit or two group 2 credits.
