Oral Contraceptives Course

With the role of pharmacists continuing to grow, this new Oral Contraceptives Course complements pharmacists’ journey to upskill and train towards an extended scope of practice. 


Take Home Naloxone Training

Both pharmaceutical (e.g. oxycodone, fentanyl) and non-pharmaceutical opioids (e.g. heroin) can cause several side effects. Respiratory failure is a serious side effect of opioid use, where a person may lose consciousness and stop breathing, which can result in death.

This may be referred to as an ‘opioid adverse reaction’ or ‘opioid overdose’ and can happen even when someone uses opioid medicines at their prescribed dose.
