NSW/ACT ATU Pre-Conference Courses
Immunistation Training & Refresher
From the expected date of 1st January 2019, pharmacists in NSW will be able to provide private MMR and dTpa immunisations to people aged 16 years and over (in addition to influenza). To assist with this expansion of scope, a dedicated immunisation course and refresher training course will be run as a pre-conference workshop at ATU on Thursday 21st March 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. This is a great opportunity for pharmacists to become accredited immunisers, and for trained pharmacist immunisers to refresh their knowledge on injection technique, particularly subcutaneous administration.
Blended Mental Health First Aid
This Blended MHFA course (a combination of online and a half-day face-to-face workshop), is essential training for all pharmacists and front line pharmacy staff. Informed by a reference group of pharmacy professionals across Australia, this course teaches pharmacists how to assist a customer who is developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
You will learn how to assist an adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidencebased action plan.
