Simulation Learning in Pharmacy
In this one-day event, participate in two workshops using multidisciplinary collaborative learning, to discover how pharmacists can use simulation to improve their practice.
Gaining access: how are you going to give that?
Hospital pharmacy staff are often asked to provide advice around administration of medicines when the oral route is not suitable. This hands-on workshop will let you touch, test, see and ask about the various devices which are used to administer medicines and access the circulatory system. You will come away with a greater appreciation of the complexities of following out your advice.
- Compare and contrast lines and tubing used in medication administration
- Discuss the challenges associated with medication administration via invasive devices
- Perform simulated administration of medications via unlicensed routes using altered drug formulations
Ready Set MET
Have you ever wondered what happens when a patient clinically deteriorates on the ward and a Medical Response Team (MET) or Rapid Response Team (RRT) rushes to their bedside? During this workshop, you will have a chance to practice as a MET pharmacist on the ‘SHPA Medical Response Team’. In this interactive workshop and virtual case, you will learn how you can integrate the skills required of a MET Pharmacist into your day to day practice and as an integral team member.
- Describe the role of the pharmacist in the Medical Emergency Team (MET) or Rapid Response Team (RRT)
- Recognise physiological signs commonly observed in the deteriorating patient
- Implement a medication plan for the treatment of rapidly deteriorating patients with sepsis, a medication overdose and acute seizures
