“COMPLEMENT” (Complete Mentoring and Diabetes Education for Clinically Practicing Pharmacists)

Summary

The initiative was designed to meet a need in primary care to rapidly upskill clinical pharmacists to be able to give complete care to people living with diabetes. Surgeries are making changes to counteract the ongoing decline in numbers of GPs and Practice Nurses and greater use of pharmacists is one answer. Prescribing clinical pharmacists are a valuable asset, alleviating the burden on remaining staff and providing appointments for patients to have face-to-face, quality time with a healthcare professional. However, according to EDEN’s Training Needs Analysis (TNA) Knowledge and Confidence (K&C) questionnaire, many do not feel ready to offer diabetes care without further training and mentorship. The COMPLEMENT (Complete Mentoring and Diabetes Education for Clinically Practising Pharmacists) programme was developed to meet this need.
