August 21, 2019 News0

The PHE has teamed up with the national AMR/HCAI Division to deliver an AMR webinar for all pharmacy staff. The webinar is being delivered alongside the national ‘Keep Antibiotics Working’ campaign for pharmacies which contractors are required to participate in from 1 Sept. to 30 Sept. The webinar is directed at all pharmacy staff and will cover:

  • What AMR is and why it is important;
  • What pharmacy staff can do to help stop the spread of AMR;
  • How to recognise when a client may have a self-limiting infection;
  • Guidance on giving advice to clients about self-care and when antibiotics may not be appropriate; and
  • Preparing pharmacy staff to make the most of the AMR campaign.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, 29 August from 19:30-20:15 and will include a Q&A session after the presentation with Dr Diane Ashiru-Oredope, Lead Pharmacist in the PHE HCAI/AMR Division.

For more information, please see the attached FLYER or the Antibiotic Guardian website: https://antibioticguardian.com/Meetings/pharmacy-amr-campaign-webinar/

Although the webinar was originally developed for pharmacies in the East of England, the content is applicable to all regions and we encourage pharmacies in other areas to take part.

You can register on the following LINK.

Please feel free to cascade/share this with any colleagues who may be interested.

Public Health England (PHE) resources for the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) campaign and Stoptober campaign, which community pharmacy contractors are required to participate in, have been sent out to pharmacies by courier. The resources for both campaigns, including activation guides, are delivered together in the same clearly marked envelope.

Contractors are required to participate in the AMR campaign from 1st September-30th September 2019 and the Stoptober campaign from 1st October-31st October 2019. The campaigns are two of six campaigns, which have been agreed between PSNC and NHS England and NHS Improvement, as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework; therefore, all contractors must participate in both of these campaigns.

Social media and digital resources for the campaigns will also be available on PHE’s Campaign Resource Centre closer to the start date of the campaigns; contractors are encouraged to use these resources if possible.

Some pharmacies will have already received the campaign materials. If you have not received your packs by 27th August 2019, please email:  partnerships@phe.gov.uk stating the pharmacy name, address and name of the campaign(s) they have not received materials for.

The digital resources and any relevant training materials will also be available on the LPC website on the following PAGE:

The Virtual outcomes AMR training is already available. You can find the flyer and course link HERE.

We have just had confirmation that the Virtual Outcomes pharmacy training programme will remain available for at least another year to our contractors.

This is good news as the library of published modules has grown considerably over the past year and it is expanding on an ongoing basis. Please bookmark our Virtual Outcomes page, if you haven’t already, where we’ll continue to list all the relevant links as they become available – conveniently located all on one PAGE.

We have also received a schedule for the modules planned from September supporting the new pharmacy contract. This is on top of the already announced modules in 2019.  We hope you’ll continue to find these training modules helpful.

Please find below a list of the planned modules supporting the new contract:
