Mentorship Skills for Pharmacists

Dates and times:

Three evening sessions from 7pm to 9pm

28th September, 5th October and 12th October

Facilitated by Kingstown College, the aim of the training programme is to introduce pharmacists to recognised principles of mentorship and assist them to engage with examples and scenarios that will help them to implement these principles into their own practice. It would be particularly useful for pharmacists who have an interest in supporting colleagues and developing others. It would be anticipated that those participating in this programme would be open to initiating mentoring relationships within the profession as part of a formal mentoring programme in the future. The workshops are delivered online in three parts over three evenings from 7.00pm to 9.00pm.


Managing Conflict in Pharmacy Practice 

Date and time:

Thursday 21st September -  6.30pm to 9.15pm

The aim of the workshop is to provide training to pharmacists on conflict management (including de-escalation techniques) and to equip pharmacists with knowledge and tools to recognise and respond to conflict productively. The online workshops will be facilitated by Marcomm Training, an award-winning training consultancy with expertise in essential management skills development.
