Assessments for On-call Pharmacists elearning programme now available

Assessments for On-Call Pharmacists

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with HEE London and South East (HEE LaSE) Pharmacy Team to develop an elearning programme for pharmacy colleagues.

Assessments for On-call Pharmacists aims to provide trainee pharmacists and early career pharmacists with an insight into the variety of different clinical scenarios that may be encountered out of normal working hours. These include questions on how to manage drug-drug interactions, which resources to refer to, and how to prioritise queries. Examples include how to best manage a request from a nurse asking to borrow clozapine from another patient or deciding on the correct dosage of medication for an unwell patient with a renal transplant admitted to the intensive care unit.

These assessments should be considered a supplementary resource alongside existing local induction and training for on-call pharmacists. The core e-assessment must be completed to obtain a certificate and includes various clinical topics that will be seen during early careers.

On completion of the programmes, which takes approximately 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete, learners are expected to understand the different clinical resources available and how to use them to do the assessments.

For more information and to access the resource, please visit the Assessments for On-call Pharmacists programme page.
