A new training programme, launched by Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW), will enable pharmacy technicians in Wales to re-certify in medicine management to support the workforce during this challenging time.
The new programme will help pharmacy technicians returning to practice during the COVID-19 pandemic, and those transferring their skills between workplace settings, to refresh their skills, knowledge and understanding.
The training programme recognises that delivery in different sectors/care settings is diverse and does not attempt to prescribe one single model for the delivery of medicines management.
This programme can only be used if a medicine management certificate has previously been awarded, the certificate must state the modules that pharmacy technicians wish to be re-certificated in.
Current registration with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC)
Previous completion of a recognised medicine management programme
Access to an educational supervisor who can be a pharmacist or an accredited medicine management pharmacy technician
