NHS priorities

Whether it’s to prepare for the next Quality Payments Scheme deadline, or to increase your confidence in helping people with a learning disability, this section provides topic-specific pages that link to current NHS priorities. This section will support you in keeping your knowledge and skills up to date in order to provide high-quality pharmacy services and be service-ready.

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.

Supporting older people - a CPPE learning campaign

We have launched a new learning campaign, Supporting older people, which began on 11 May 2015. During this campaign we will post a new distance learning programme, Older people, to you and set you six challenges to get you thinking about how you can support older people in your practice.

We all need to consider the changes that come with ageing and the impact these have on health, and think about the care we give to older people. Pharmacy professionals are ideally placed to offer support and make a positive difference to older people.

Our learning campaign

From 11 May 2015 we will set you a challenge a week for six weeks. Look out for our emails and posts on Facebook and Twitter. Let us know what you are doing by posting your feedback on our social media pages. Download a PDF of the Supporting older people leaflet to find out what the challenges will be. 

Older people distance learning programme

We have developed a new distance learning programme entitled Older people. We will be posting this programme and details of our learning campaign to you in May 2015. It will give you a comprehensive overview of the care of older people and the opportunity to look at how you can use a patient-centred approach when providing support. Look out for this programme in May.
