As pharmacists increasingly branch out into private vaccination services, it is important that they know where they can complete necessary training, to ensure they keep up to date.
Training requirements to offer vaccination services vary but it is always a good idea to attend a course that covers as comprehensive a list of skills as possible.
Over the last few years PharmaDoctor has pointed pharmacists in the direction of ECG Ltd for their training and have received excellent feedback.
ECG Ltd was established in 2002 by Jane Lambert, an experienced nurse and trainer. Jane explains that the company is 'now a market leader in providing vaccine and clinical skills training to large and small organisations (Pharmaceutical and NHS).
This year ECG is launching open courses to enable independent pharmacists or groups to be able to access training around the country. Training is delivered by experienced clinicians, it is very hands on, ensuring you leave feeling both competent and confident and enjoy the learning experience along the way!
Training is suitable for both those who are refreshing their skills and for those who are new to vaccination.
There is a choice of also attending an enhanced part of the course (following the standard course) to cover additional content such as reconstitution of vaccines, paediatric BLS and nasal administration, if you require the additional skills'.
