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.

Child health e-course launched

We are pleased to confirm that our popular Child health e-course will begin again on Monday 25 June 2018.

Child health is a tutor-supported, eight-week online course where you can learn about numerous issues encountered in children and young people, such as common childhood infections, respiratory conditions, gastrointestinal conditions and conditions affecting the central nervous system.

The course also takes a look at a wide range of clinical topics relevant to the care of children, including communicating effectively with children, the differences in pharmacology between children and adults and safeguarding children through provision of person-centred care.

Each week you will be given specific learning tasks to help you develop your knowledge, for example, reading learning materials, accessing websites and completing quizzes, as well as sharing relevant experiences with each other in the discussion forums.

Log on to the CPPE website and find the Child health e-course. Once you have booked your place you will be emailed a link to log on to the Canvas learning environment; this is the online platform we use to host our e-courses.

For more information and a weekly summary of the course, download a PDF of the Child health e-course information leaflet.
