Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire e-Learning 


We are working with Virtual Outcomes to deliver a series of online training events throughout the year.  The training is free to access and is open to all members of the pharmacy team.  An introduction for Virtual Outcomes can be found here: https://vimeo.com/316124447.


Each module will take around 15-20 minutes to complete.  The contents typically include an introduction to the topic, how it impacts the health of your patients and what you can do to support them.  There is also a link to where you can get nationally available resources for health promotion campaigns.  You can access the e-learning modules from a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection.  You will need your F-code and an email address to register.  Once you have registered you will get an email notification of any new courses.  Locum pharmacists wishing to access Virtual Ouctomes e-learning should use the F-code of the West Yorkshire pharmacy you are current working in, or last worked in.  

You will be able to access a certificate for each module completed.  If you need help logging on to watch the webinar please see the Virtual Outcomes Login Easy Guide
