NHS priorities

Whether it’s to prepare for the next Pharmacy Quality 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.

World Antibiotic Awareness Week marks last week of CPPE's EAAD campaign

It’s the fourth week of our learning campaign leading up to European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) on Saturday 18 November.

The challenge for this final week is to access the e-bug website and have a look at the available resources. E-bug contains teaching resources to teach children and young people about microbes and antibiotics and is endorsed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Think about how you can use these resources to engage the younger population with antimicrobial stewardship.

Record the date you access this resource on our EAAD campaign page, and make sure you have completed the challenges from the previous weeks of the campaign to earn your badge!

This week is World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW), run by the World Health Organisation (WHO). There are a huge amount of resources to help you engage with members of the public to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance, available on the World Health Organisation’s website.

Another new resource to increase awareness of antimicrobial resistance has been released this week. CATCH is a public engagement project in the form of a short film about a post-antibiotic future. CATCH is available to watch online now, access the film and information about what you can do to prevent a post-antibiotic world at www.catchshortfilm.com

Thank you for your continuing engagement with our EAAD campaign. Let us know what you think and how you will improve your practice on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Tag @cppeengland, use the hashtag #CPPEEAAD17 and let us know what #AntibioticGuardian pledge you have made.
