Pharmacy First CPD: Acute sinusitis

This is the latest in our series of CPD modules designed to support pharmacists to manage common conditions and deliver England’s new Pharmacy First service. It will be useful for community pharmacists responding to patients 12 years and over with acute sinusitis.

Introduction & module overview

Community pharmacists already advise on acute sinusitis, referring to a GP when red flags are present or where antibiotics might be needed. This module will enhance existing knowledge and help expand pharmacists’ clinical role. Drawing on the NICE Sinusitis (acute): antimicrobial prescribing guideline [NG79], it will support decision-making and identify the small number of occasions where antibiotics might be needed.
