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.

Children's oral health e-lecture launched

We are excited to announce that we have launched an e-lecture on Children’s oral health on our new gateway pages.

In England, a quarter of five-year-olds have tooth decay, while tooth extraction due to tooth decay has been shown to be the most common cause for hospital admissions among children aged five to nine.

The programme talks about the process of tooth decay, the position we are in nationally, what is being done to combat the problem, and how this applies to pharmacy teams.

The e-lecture lasts less than 20 minutes, and outlines what is meant by oral health, the process of tooth decay and how it can be prevented.

The programme will allow you to see what is being done to address the issues and to use the information to plan how pharmacy professionals can improve the situation.

Supported by input from the Faculty of Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, it is available to all pharmacy professionals, free of charge, by visiting the Oral health gateway page.

Once on the gateway page, select Children’s oral health in the Core and foundation learning section to watch the e-lecture.

Alternatively, you can watch the e-lecture by clicking on the video at the bottom of this article.

You will also be able to avail of a host of other resources on the gateway page on the wider topic of oral health.
