ClinCAT Seminar

The ClinCAT seminar is designed for pharmacists with significant and recent clinical experience and proven teaching/mentoring skills who wish to implement ClinCAT in their workplace.

Participants at this seminar will get an insight into the national drivers for competency-based evaluations, understand how to use the ClinCAT in practice and receive training in feedback and evaluation techniques. Implementation strategies that can be used at individual sites will be discussed during the course of this highly interactive weekend.

ClinCAT seminars are offered on a regional basis to support local networks and are scheduled according to interest. Places are strictly limited to optimise participation and facilitate networking.

Please note that the seminar is part of a blended delivery training program that can be undertaken by pharmacists who want to gain recognition as a ClinCAT evaluator. The training program includes:

  • preparatory coursework (including pre-reading and a self-assessment exercise),
  • attendance at the face-to-face seminar,
  • trial evaluation at the workplace with a buddy, and
  • three ClinCAT workplace evaluations to be undertaken within six months of attending the seminar.

For ClinCAT trained evaluators

The ClinCAT Feedback Master Class is a one-day intensive program for ClinCAT evaluators who have undertaken at least 5-6 ClinCAT evaluations in the workplace and wish to improve their feedback skills.
 
Participants will discuss challenging feedback situations that have occurred in practice and will learn communication methods to handle them more effectively. Techniques to encourage pharmacists follow through on agreed CPD plans will also be covered. Participants will need to complete a pre-seminar survey and be prepared to participate in group discussion with their peers.
