We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Clinical calculations for pharmacy professionals e-assessment. This e-assessment supports the learning from the Clinical calculations for pharmacy professionals e-learning programme
The e-assessment will help you to test your ability to accurately perform drug calculations in different clinical scenarios and help to ensure safe and effective drug dosing for individual patients.
The ability to accurately perform calculations affecting patient care is one of the important topics tested in the GPhC registration exam. The Clinical calculations for pharmacy professionals programme aims to support pharmacy professionals with calculations in clinical settings when preparing, prescribing or checking medicines, or when advising other healthcare professionals.
The e-learning programme provides you with four short case studies to work through so that you can see how the calculations you are making relate to patient care and every day clinical practice. After each question there is a video showing how we have worked out the suggested answer.
The four case studies are:
Although the case studies are based on hospital and clinical primary care settings, the principles involved can be applied to any sector of pharmacy and may help to support safe service delivery as the clinical role for community pharmacy expands.
Access and successful completion of the e-assessment will contribute to your own personal development plan, be recorded in your My CPPE record and will enable you to complete a CPD entry on the learning.
