Naturo Pharm Homoeopathic Education
INTRODUCTION TO HOMOEOPATHY
A homoeopathic training course for retail staff
Introduction to Homoeopathy is a training course for retail staff in pharmacies and health stores throughout New Zealand.
Research both here and overseas has shown that pharmacies and health stores are the main source of information for customers interested in complementary remedies. Therefore,you will probably not have to wait long for an opportunity to use your new knowledge given the increasing demand for such products.
Remember, this course will not teach you to be a homoeopath. It has been designed to provide you with a basic knowledge and understanding of homoeopathy and to enable you to confidently prescribe Naturo Pharm remedies over the counter for many common conditions.
After you have completed this course you should be able to:
1. Confidently discuss the main features of homoeopathy with customers.
2. Assist customers to select the appropriate Naturo Pharm homoeopathic remedy.
3. Prescribe Naturo Pharm remedies over the counter for simple conditions.
4. Recognise where homoeopathy can be of use but also to know when customers should be referred to a health professional.
The course is divided into three modules:
Module 1: What is Homoeopathy?
Module 2: Homoeopathic Remedies
Module 3: Remedy Selection
Each module is divided into sections. At the end of each section there will be a short self-assessment exercise to help reinforce your knowledge of that section. The self-assessment exercises have been designed to enable you to assess your own ability and they do not require marking.
Each module is designed to involve several hours work. You do not have to do all this work in one sitting – it is probably best to spread it out over a number of weeks. To achieve maximum benefit you should aim to complete the three course modules within three months.
At the end of each module you will be required to sit an exam on your knowledge. On successfully passing the exam, you will graduate to the next module. The exams are comprised of multiple choice questions and you will be required to indicate the correct answer. Should you fail to pass an exam, you will have the opportunity to refresh your knowledge and sit that exam again.
On the successful completion of Module 3, you will receive a certificate stating you have successfully completed the Naturo Pharm Introduction to Homoeopathy course.
You will also receive the Naturo Pharm Consultant's badge to demonstrate to your customers that you have a working knowledge of basic homoeopathy.
