Pharmacy Employees

For Pharmacy Employees

Working in a pharmacy you have to manage multiple tasks simultaneously, often including actively managing customer queries, requests, and ensuring compliance with significant numbers of operational procedures, PSI guidelines, dispensing requests, and of course being a healthcare professional, advising many patients each day.

A pharmacy is a healthcare facility and all staff should (legally required!) be trained to provide accurate and knowledgeable information to all patients. Whether you work behind a make-up counter, medicines counter or just part time, you are still expected to be able to provide accurate advice to patients and know when to ask for pharmacist referral.

Complimenting all roles within the Pharmacy…

“It was so beneficial to have access to this training while I was doing my pharmacy technician course. In the first year, I was the only person studying in the pharmacy and I felt a bit isolated. But in the second year, we were all learning together. I think we all appreciate each other’s roles more now and I found that I was much more engaged with my pharmacy technician course work as a result of both the online videos and the fact we were all learning together.”

“I did the IPU Medicine Counter Assistant Course several years ago. I learned a lot and it seems I also forgot a lot! I am really enjoying using the videos to learn how to serve my customers better and I am learning lots of practical tips for use as a Mum at home too!”
