The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) was commissioned by Health Education England (HEE), on behalf of NHS England (NHSE), to provide the education for 600 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians recruited to NHSE Medicines Optimisation in Care Homes programme. We have created a programme that will meet the needs of these pharmacy professionals and ensure they are fully equipped in their medicines optimisation roles in care homes.
This pathway is no longer open for enrolment. The last cohort enrolled in September 2020. Pharmacy professionals working in primary care network (PCN) roles supported with the directed enhanced service additional roles reimbursement scheme are now enrolling on the Primary care pharmacy education pathway. We created a programme to meet the needs of these pharmacy professionals and ensure they are fully equipped in their medicines optimisation roles in care homes.
As part of our programme development process, we worked with experts in the enhanced health in care homes (ECHC) vanguards, and across primary and secondary care, to ensure a multidisciplinary approach. We linked with clinical pharmacists in general practice and engaged with care home residents and the public in our programme development.Much of the learning we developed is now being used in the primary care pharmacy education pathway.
