IIOP have published a new online training programme for the Diagnosis and Treatment of an Acute Asthma Attack and the Supply and Administration of Salbutamol.
 
This programme is a fully online and self-directed training programme, which enables pharmacists to satisfy the training requirements for the supply and administration of salbutamol in an emergency situation as outlined in S.I. No. 449/2015 and by the PSI.

IIOP - CPD Examples in Practice

IIOP are providing free examples of CPD cycles on their website.

In this edition, they speak to pharmacist Fearghal O'Nia, supervising pharmacist at Dargan's Pharmacy in Dublin about his experiences of using the IIOP courses.

This is a really good example for supervising pharmacists focusing on managing quality in pharmacy practice.
