Courses: Accredited Courses

An accredited course is the term used to describe a programme of learning that is a pre-requisite to service delivery. Services, such as maintenance of PMRs, require completion of only one distance learning course, while others, such as Substitution Prescribing, require completion of both live and distance learning components.


Managing your Medicines

You must complete a training course consisting of the workshop entitled Medicines Management - Medication Review and the distance learning course entitled Managing Medicines in Older People (2017).


Patient Medication Review & Records

You must complete the online course entitled Patient Medication Review and Records (2018).

Completion of the online course on Patient Medication Review and Records accredits pharmacists to provide both PMR and repeat dispensing services.

However, if you have already completed the previous distance learning courses (2006 or 2010 course), you do not have to complete the new course to remain accredited.


Pharmacy Services to Care Homes

You must complete the online distance learning course, Pharmacy Services to Care Homes (2018).

However, if you have already completed the previous 2006 distance learning course, you do not have to complete the new course to be accredited.


Repeat Dispensing

The workshops on Repeat Dispensing have now ended.

Pharmacists who want to become accredited to provide a repeat dispensing service should view the online course on Repeat Dispensing, available on this website.

Alternatively, completion of the online course on Patient Medication Review and Records accredits pharmacists to provide both PMR and repeat dispensing services.


Smoking Cessation

Pharmacists who want to become accredited to provide a smoking cessation service must complete the online course Public Health: Smoking Cessation (2014).

However, if you have already completed the previous distance learning courses (2008 or 2012 course), you do not have to complete the new course to remain accredited.


Substitution Prescribing

You must complete the online learning course entitled Substance Use and Pharmaceutical Care (2014) and attend the live workshop entitled Substitution Prescribing.
