Ear care


Ear problems

Ears are complex organs and when things go
wrong, it’s not just hearing that can be affected – pain and balance issues are common too. This module will help pharmacy assistants give customers sound advice on how they can care for their ears.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the structure of the outer, middle and inner ear
  • Be aware of some of the most common ear conditions and how to advise customers on treating them
  • Know when to refer to the pharmacist.
