Maintain your competency

As a Pharmacist Immuniser you are required by the Pharmacy Board to maintain competence in the role you perform and the services you provide.

 

Immunisation scope is constantly evolving, so it is important as a Pharmacist Immuniser, to keep your knowledge and skills up to date, to maintain your competence relevant to your scope of practice.

Immunisation Online Refresher Course

Our Immunisation Online Refresher Course supports you to boost you immunisation knowledge. It is relevant to pharmacists who are current immunisers and:

  • Require an annual update on immunisation changes or regulatory updates OR
  • Are moving interstate in order to meet state requirements OR
  • Need to expand their scope in order to administer additional vaccines that have been added to state jurisdictions since their initial training

 

This CPD accredited, online course includes:

  • Annual Immunisation Update
  • State/Territory-specific regulatory overview
  • Implementing an Immunisation service module
  • Clinical modules relevant to your scope of practice

Note: If you are transitioning to Victoria and you have completed an immunisation training course other than the Victorian recognised ‘Immuniser program of study’, you are not authorised to administer vaccinations in Victoria. If you have moved to practice in Victoria and have completed the Victorian Immunisation training, then you are able to enrol in the Immunisation Online Refresher Course to maintain your competency.

 

Pharmacist Immunisers in all other states can choose to complete the Immunisation Online Refresher Course in addition to attending an Immunisation Practical Refresher Workshop.

Immunisation Practical Refresher Workshops

The Immunisation Practical Refresher Workshop is suitable for all Pharmacist Immunisers who wish to refresh their immunisation skills and knowledge, and maintain competency requirements.
