PD breaking news – Guild to offer first accredited vaccination course

NSW branch to offer nationally accredited course for pharmacist vaccination training.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia NSW branch has said it will offer the first nationally accredited course for training pharmacists to vaccinate.

The Guild said the course, NAT10445 – Conduct Immunisation Services within a Community Pharmacy Environment, was accredited through the Australian Skills and Quality Authority and was added to the Guild’s scope of registration in May.

This meant it could now run the course and issue certificates to pharmacists deemed competent, with the course available to other registered training organisations via licensing agreements, the Guild said,

“The Guild is the only organisation that currently has a nationally accredited course for training pharmacists.”

This follows the extension of the Queensland Pharmacist Vaccination Pilot to include a second influenza season and vaccinations for measles and whooping cough for adults (PD 10 Jul).

The Guild said no NSW pharmacy was legally able to have pharmacist delivered immunisations, the Guild said.

“Required changes to regulations within the relevant health legislation have not yet proceeded, but it is hoped they will be forthcoming very soon.”
