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.

Return to prescribing back for 2018

We are pleased to confirm the return of our popular Return to prescribing course in early 2018.

This course has been designed for any registered pharmacist prescriber in England looking to rediscover their prescribing skills and get back into a prescribing role.

Supplementary prescribers who need to meet eligibility criteria for a conversion course will also benefit from attending.

The CPPE Return to prescribing course is a three-day programme delivered over a period of three months.

It is open to any pharmacist prescriber registered in England who needs to regain the competence and confidence to prescribe.

Over the three days you will reflect on your current skills and identify actions, resources and opportunities to address gaps in the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for effective prescribing.

This will be achieved through a mix of individual learning, group activities and discussions, and sharing of best practice.

The next available course is on 21 and 22 January 2018, and 24 April 2018 in Manchester.

There is no fee to attend CPPE Return to prescribing, which is funded by Health Education England.
