Pharmacy First: Clinical Assessment and Examination Skills

10th November 2024 Full day

Holiday Inn Reading South, RG2 0SL

This CPPE full day workshop has been designed to support pharmacists to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to undertake effective consultations, communications and clinical assessments in order to provide the NHS Pharmacy First service.

On completion of all aspects of this learning programme you should be able to:

  • describe the clinical history-taking process
  • apply tools and techniques to demonstrate a structured person-centred approach to clinical history taking
  • apply evidence-based practice and relevant guidance to support clinical reasoning, engage the person in shared decision making and promote self-care during a consultation
  • demonstrate a range of clinical examination skills, including ear nose and throat
  • interpret and apply clinical assessment test results and findings to aid clinical diagnosis and decision making
  • explain the significance of red flags in the consultation
  • demonstrate a safe and effective closure to the consultation, including safety netting, signposting and onward referral to the relevant member of the multidisciplinary team when necessary
  • complete an accurate and concise clinical record to support data sharing and transfer of care across healthcare settings

You will need to bring along your own otoscope to use during the workshop – this is important to ensure that you have adequate time available to practise examination skills.

Please note, you will not be able to book this workshop if you have already attended the CPPE Ear, nose and throat examination: advancing clinical assessment skills workshop or the CPPE NHS Pharmacy First: Clinical assessment – essential skills online workshop.
