Description of the training

The Fatebenefratelli e Oftalmico Hospital will provide training on the following Statements:

Outline of the training experience provided by the Fatebenefratelli e Oftalmico Hospital:

"Students will be involved in the process of medicine procurement that is applied in the Hospital Pharmacy including storage, preparation, dispensing, distribution and disposal conditions of drugs. Students will participate in ward inspections to verify the correct application of the internal procedures (management of high risk drugs, LASA,…). During the training, dispensing of medicines to discharge patients and outpatients will be conducted. Students will be able to observe the different management of controlled drugs which have specific procedures according to National legislation.

Students will learn different active strategies which have been implemented in the Hospital to report ADRs and medication errors through a regional pharmacovigilance programme. These strategies involve training and educational programs for all healthcare professionals in order to create awareness within the Hospital of the importance of ADR reporting. Guidelines for monitoring, detecting, preventing and reporting ADRs will be shared with fellows and they will be able to participate with Pharmacists in different ward teams allowing immediate problem recognition.

During the ward rounds, students will also be able to observe the medicines administration process".
