Meducate Academy is making waves in healthcare education, from a successful venture with Physician Associate students at Chester Medical School to expanding collaboration with Cliniskills across multiple locations. Discover the positive impact of our training, empowering healthcare professionals and advancing education as we share insights into our rigorous training programs, specialized sessions for pharmacists, and our pivotal role in supporting the upcoming NHS Pharmacy First directive in 2024.
What an extraordinary month it has been for Meducate Academy and its committed team of Associate Clinical Educators!
The journey commenced with our customary venture to Chester, where we collaborated with the newest cohort of Physician Associate students at Chester Medical School. It’s a momentous occasion as they embark on their two-year educational journey, and engaging with them about the upcoming year is always a highlight.
As the weeks unfolded, we further solidified our partnership with Cliniskills, extending our reach from Preston to Slough, Oxford and Reading. Our teams spent two days at each venue, actively participating in the training of Community Pharmacists, focusing on ENT and basic cardio examinations. The enthusiasm and dedication displayed by our educators in upskilling experienced health professionals were evident, with a robust presence of ten on each team.
At Meducate Academy, we take pride in our commitment to excellence, ensuring that only the most experienced ACEs join our ranks. We offer continuous on-the-job training and quarterly sessions, with our upcoming session scheduled in Birmingham on February 10th, fully booked due to overwhelming demand. If you aspire to train with us, be sure to get in touch or stay tuned to our blog for updates.
Responding to the high demand for ACEs in the Pharmacy profession, our training will be tailored to meet their specific needs. Our focus will encompass ENT procedures, manual blood pressure, basic cardio examination techniques, and even some gastrointestinal exams. During the session, we will delve into the CEST model, ensuring our training material aligns perfectly with the requirements.
With the imminent rollout of NHS England’s Pharmacy First directive in 2024, our strong partnership with Cliniskills has proven invaluable. Recognizing the benefits of high-fidelity simulation, they consistently enlist our Associate Clinical Educators for most of their courses. Cliniskills boasts a dynamic and engaging online learning platform alongside in-person training, providing a comprehensive learning experience.
The feedback from these sessions has been overwhelmingly positive, with a community pharmacist expressing how the clinical examination skills learned would empower him to confidently assess common conditions, identify high-risk presentations and red flags, and conduct hands-on examinations for Ear, Nose & Throat and Blood Pressure checks.
As we navigate through this dynamic landscape, Meducate Academy remains dedicated to advancing healthcare education and empowering professionals for the challenges that lie ahead.
Our commitment to supporting The University of Wolverhampton and The University of Birmingham’s Undergraduate Pharmacy courses remains unwavering. We actively contribute to their programs through sessions focusing on communication and systems examinations.
In a recent endeavour, we conducted a session for fourth-year students at Birmingham, delving into the intricate subject of Cranial Nerves. While navigating the complexities of this topic can be demanding, the students actively engaged with our experienced ACEs, and to our delight, they left the session with smiles on their faces. Achieving such positive outcomes in a challenging area like Cranial Nerves is indeed a commendable feat.
