Pharmaceutical Inventory Management

About the course

The demand for healthcare and eldercare services is set to grow due to the rapidly ageing population. Retail pharmacies will play increasingly important roles to promote preventative healthcare, and continuing care at home and in the community. In order to make sure the retail pharmacies are sustainable, the retail personnel will also need to manage the operations and business in addition to providing healthcare advice.

Through this course, participants will gain an overview to the challenges of managing the pharmaceutical products with short shelf lives and solutions provided by the inventory management systems. Participants will be able to apply tactics used in retail pharmacies and hospital pharmacies to manage the inventory using digital tools to reduce revenue loss due to expiration.
