Public Health Campaigns
Recording on PharmOutcomes:
The LPC have produced a series of videos explaining how to use PharmOutcomes to record services. There are several short videos which can be used by the whole pharmacy team and also by locums and relief pharmacists to help them understand how the system works and how to use it.
We suggest you start by watching the “Welcome to PharmOutcomes” video followed by “The Services Tab” video.
After that simply select the clip which is relevant to your needs.
