HRA Pharma UK has announced that, now that ellaOne® is available in UK Pharmacy without prescription, it will be launching a comprehensive training programme to support the introduction into pharmacy.
Part of this programme includes seven interactive workshops which will take place at venues across the UK. These workshops will provide a summary of information regarding ellaOne®, and explore how the new option fits into current provision of emergency contraceptives in pharmacy. A full toolkit will be available to assist the team during future consultations. Attendance at the workshops can be used towards continuing professional development accreditation records.
Tony Fraser, General Manager of HRA Pharma UK and Ireland, commented, “As a company committed to improving women’s healthcare, HRA is delighted that ellaOne® is now available direct from pharmacies across the country. Our training programme will ensure that supply under the supervision of the Pharmacist can be made with confident recommendations about all the emergency contraceptive options available, allowing more women to take control of their own reproductive futures”
Workshops will take place at the Britannia Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool on 22nd April, the Royal College of Surgeons in London on 23rd April, the St Johns Hotel in Solihull on 28th April, the Marriott Hotel in Leeds on 29th April, Hendon Hall in London on 30th April, the Hampton By Hilton in Croydon on 6th May and will conclude at the Hilton Temple Patrick in Belfast on 14th May.
