Our blended learning PGCert in Advanced Specialist Training in Emergency Medicine enables registered pharmacists to independently evaluate and assess patients who present to the emergency department.
You will also build the knowledge and skills needed to independently recommend and/or prescribe appropriate medicines for emergency treatment.
Hospital pharmacists will be able to manage emergency department patients in addition to working as part of a multidisciplinary emergency team upon completion of the course.
The course consists of two 30-credit postgraduate short courses: Independent Prescribing and Advanced Clinical Skills. Independent Prescribing is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).
