This will build the confidence and knowledge of Community Pharmacists in recognising the signs and symptoms of cancer as well as being able to provide effective support to People Living with Cancer.
It is aimed at all Community Pharmacists including those employed directly by Primary Care who provide structured medication reviews, manage long term conditions, management of medicines on transfer of care while addressing both the public health and social care needs of patients in the community and GP practices.
By the end, participants should be able to:
- Understand the importance of Early Diagnosis and recognise serious signs and symptoms that may be identified during a consultation relating to other conditions
- Identify ways to support customers affected by cancer taking into account their individual needs and circumstances
- Demonstrate an ability to proactively signpost customers to relevant information about cancer support
