Guild Learning and Development and RB have developed a CPD-accredited online course on fever
The course is titled Managing fever in infants and toddlers.
Parents commonly present to a pharmacy seeking advice on how to manage fever in infants and younger children, the Guild says.
Because of their accessibility, pharmacists are ideally placed to provide pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options for fever in children, as well as identifying when referral to a general practitioner is necessary.
This course examines the aetiology of infant and toddler fever, and reviews the pharmacological and non-pharmacological management options available.
The course also compares the efficacy and tolerability of paracetamol and ibuprofen in the treatment of paediatric fever.
This activity has been accredited for one hour of Group 1 CPD (or 1 CPD credit) – suitable for inclusion in an individual pharmacist’s CPD plan—which can be converted to one hour of Group 2 CPD (or 2 CPD credits) after successfully completing relevant assessment activities.
Guild Learning and Development has thanked RB for its financial support and input of expertise in the development of this course.
