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.

Patient safety campaign begins Monday 26 February

We are launching our spring learning campaign on Patient safety next week, on Monday 26 February 2018.

The campaign will have six weekly challenges, as well as our newly developed Risk management guide to support your learning.

This guide has been recently updated in collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Greater Manchester Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC) and you will need it to complete the third challenge.

Patient safety is a key concern for pharmacy professionals, as improving health and minimising risk to patients is an integral part of pharmacy roles across all sectors.

The aim of this campaign is to help you assess the circumstances that can lead to mistakes and put patients at risk, as well as supporting you in developing and maintaining the safety culture in your practice.

The first challenge of our Patient safety campaign is our e-challenge. This has been co-written by our colleagues at Pharmacist Support and is available now on our e-challenge page if you want to get ahead with the campaign.

Once you have completed all six challenges, you will be able to download a poster for display to show your commitment to patient safety.

Join our campaign and show your support through posting about the campaign on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #CPPEPS.

For more information on the campaign, visit our dedicated campaign page at www.cppe.ac.uk/patientsafety

Our new Patient safety gateway page also has a variety of additional resources such as quizzes, team learning, videos and signposts to external tools, which you can use to aid your learning
