The Pharmacist Update Course

The one day course for all pharmacists in primary care

- whether you're a community pharmacist, a practice pharmacist
or part of a medicines management team!

Overwhelmed by new clinical information and guidance? 
Want to improve your skills for medication review or advanced services?
Need to give evidence based prescribing advice to colleagues and GPs?

This one day course offers a comprehensive, evidence-based programme covering long-term conditions, self care and public health issues. We trawl through all the journals and do all the legwork to bring you up to speed on the latest issues, literature, research and guidelines. All prepared and delivered by our primary care team.
Like all our courses, the Red Whale | Pharmacist Update Course is completely free from pharmaceutical company sponsorship. We want you to be totally reassured that there will be no biasing of the information presented to you!
We believe that pharmacists play a really important role within the primary care context. As the demands on primary care continue to increase, the role of pharmacists is becoming ever more important.
This course is designed to ensure that pharmacists are up to date on long-term conditions, self-care and public health issues and equipped with the competencies they need to provide high quality essential services and lifestyle advice, confidently deliver effective Medicines Use Reviews (MURs) and the New Medicines Service (NMS).
Directed by our experienced primary care team, this course covers the latest evidence and guidelines as well as simple ideas you'll find really easy to put into practice. This event contains no theorists, no gurus and no sponsors - just real life GPs who will be back at the coalface as soon as the course is over.
Who are we? Red Whale is one of the leading providers of primary care medical education in the UK with over 15,000 GPs attending our courses each year. We specialise in producing courses that are evidence based, very relevant to everyday practice and full of actions that delegates can take away and implement immediately.

Many pharmacists have attended our GP Update courses over the years and have fed back that they would like something tailored to them and their CPD needs. If you haven't been on one of our courses, you may have heard of the GP Update Course from your GP colleagues. This new course follows a similar style and format with material focused on the priorities for pharmacy in community and primary care.
