Clinical pharmacy

Our clinical portfolio is expanding on a frequent basis, helping you to advance your knowledge and skills and deliver medicines optimisation in practice for all sectors of pharmacy. From two new focal points a year to our small group learning for hospital pharmacists – Optimise – this section focuses on clinical pharmacy, diseases and therapeutics.

Public health

The public health agenda is embedded in pharmacy, yet topics such as emergency contraception or stop smoking support are as prevalent as ever. As well as our public health workshops, use this section to access a wide range of resources to assure and maintain your competence, all underpinned by the Declaration of Competence system.

Our e-challenge provides you with a regular quiz on what's new and happening in pharmacy, medicines and the NHS.

You'll find questions on a range of topics such as pharmacy services, new medicines, legal issues, ethical concerns and recently released reports and research. We have teamed up with The Pharmaceutical Journal to help us with this so it's a great way to keep up to date and find ideas for CPD recording. We have added the odd fun question too!
