  • A free coronavirus certified training programme is being made available to all pharmacy staff with immediate effect.

    Developed by Irish e-Learning start-up 4Front Pharmacy, it consists of four courses:

    1. What Causes Infections
    2. CoronaVirus-COVID 19
    3. Managing Infections
    4. Protecting Staff & Patients from Infections in Community Pharmacy

    Each course takes around 15-30 minutes to complete and 4Front Pharmacy stated the programme is specifically designed for all staff working in community pharmacy, from pharmacists to front-of-shop staff.

    The coronavirus-COVID 19 course will be reviewed and updated each week in line with national developments.

    Co-founder of 4Front Pharmacy, David McLean, said: “In the absence of an available vaccine, our best defence against the spread of infection is to educate all employees with accurate information about the disease, proven methods to prevent infection, and link this to the latest national advice.

    "This is the right thing to do at the right time – for pharmacies, their staff and their customers."
