The role of the Flu Champion is an important one and they will have the knowledge and confidence to promote the service to customers, patients and the community in which they work. They support the recruitment of people into the service, answer questions about it and help with the paperwork. In addition, they give customers important advice about preventing flu, protecting themselves against flu and how to treat symptoms. This frees up the pharmacist’s time to complete the clinical assessment and provide the actual vaccination.
Our unique distance-learning Flu Champion course provides an individual with the knowledge and confidence to be more actively involved in the service. They cover the fundamentals of flu and the national service, their role as a Flu Champion, how to approach customers, and how to run an effective promotional campaign. The learning takes about 3-4 hours and assessment is through an online multiple-choice questionnaire. Successful candidates receive a certificate.
We can also run Flu Champion training events for Pharmacy groups, Local Pharmaceutical Committees and Public Health/NHS commissioners. For more information please connect with us.
How it works
Our Flu Champion Course is great for when you want to buy training for one learner. If you wish to purchase training for teams of 2 – 10 learners then take a look at our Flu Champion Course for Teams. If you have more than 10 learners connect with us and we can set up your team and manage payments for you.
When you place an order for the Flu Champion Course please add in the details of the learner during the checkout process. This name will be the one that appears on the course certificate when they pass. The payment details you enter can belong to a different individual or a company.
We will send a workbook to the address you give us so that your learner can start as soon as it arrives. Once the course is completed and your learner feels ready, they can take their online assessment. They have as many chances as they need to pass (although we do mix up the questions for subsequent attempts) and when they do so they’ll be able to download a named certificate for display.
Following purchase visit the My account page (you can find this at any time in the main Navigation at the top of our website) and click on Memberships. You’ll be able to access your online assessment there when you are ready.
If you have any queries or questions connect with us and we’ll be happy to provide you with the answers.
