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.

New Patient safety focal point events launched

We are pleased to announce that bookings are now being taken for our latest focal point events – Patient safety: an anticoagulant case study.

Hot off the heels of our Patient safety learning campaign, this new focal point aims to provide you with the background knowledge relating to patient safety and risk management, and to give you the opportunity to apply this to practice.

The programme also focuses more specifically on a case study about anticoagulation to help you recognise risk associated with the condition, while ensuring you can confidently consult with those who are prescribed high-risk medicines.

Medicines safety is a worldwide issue, with unsafe medicines practice and medication error being a leading cause of injury and avoidable harm worldwide.

In response, the World Health Organization has identified ‘Medication Without Harm’ as the theme for their third global patient safety challenge, which was launched in March 2017.

The overall goal was to ‘reduce the level of severe, avoidable harm related to medicines by 50 percent over five years, globally’.

This event ties in with the WHO initiative, describing the principles of patient safety concepts and technology, while also ensuring you can respond appropriately to patient safety incidents.

CPPE focal points bring you right up-to-date with expertly written material and learning with colleagues in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment.

Connect with those attending Patient safety: an anticoagulant case study workshops by using the hashtag #CPPEPS on Twitter to share your experiences and photos of events.
