Pharmacy e-learning module
Working in the pharmacy you are well placed to spot potential signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer. You therefore play a crucial role in aiding early diagnosis, which can significantly improve a patient’s chance of survival. By familiarising yourself with the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer, you will be able to identify when urgent referral to the GP is required.
We have developed free online interactive training on pancreatic cancer. This is the very first module of its kind in the world to focus on diagnosis of pancreatic cancer for pharmacists.
The pharmacy e-module, “Pancreatic cancer – the role of the pharmacy team” for the whole pharmacy team. The module is NPA-accredited.
Did you know that pancreatic cancer survival rates are the lowest of the 22 most common cancers?
Our NPA-accredited e-learning modules for pharmacists and pharmacy support staff will help you to:
- Identify the risk factors associated with pancreatic cancer and explore its impact on suffers
- Recognise the symptoms that may indicate pancreatic cancer and require urgent referral to a GP
- Reflect on the communication skills needed when speaking to customers who are suffering from, or showing symptoms of, pancreatic cancer.
The modules contain two videos; one to help highlight symptoms to look out for in patients, and a bespoke animation that will provide you with a clearer idea of a pharmacy’s role in helping customers with potential symptoms of pancreatic cancer.
