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 Falls prevention workshops launched

We are pleased to announce that we have now launched our brand new Falls prevention workshop. This two-hour workshop will help you to develop the knowledge and skills to help you manage and optimise care for patients who are at risk of having a fall.

The workshop will include a presentation from an expert speaker on falls risk, and will also provide you with the opportunity to work through a case study and a series of activities.

Our Falls prevention workshops are suitable for all pharmacy professionals and can be used to support revalidation and your continuing professional development (CPD).

By the end of the learning, you will be able to identify the factors that contribute to the risk of falls, describe the role of pharmacy professionals in falls prevention and provide educational advice on promoting good bone health and medicines for osteoporosis.
