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.

Week 3 of our Medicines, people and value campaign

It’s Week 3 of our Medicines, people and value and campaign.

Falls and fall-related injuries are a common problem, especially for older people.

Pharmacy professionals in all sectors are well placed to play a role in helping to prevent falls and support people who are at risk, by providing information and helping to optimise patients’ medicines.

After working through the e-learning, this week’s challenge is to speak to five people (for example, colleagues, patients or friends and family) about the risk of falls and how you can increase people’s awareness. You can also consider the impact that falls have on people's lives and what measures pharmacy professionals can take to reduce the incidence of falls.

Please remember to share your experiences and let us know when you have completed the e-learning on TwitterFacebook and Instagram. Tag @cppeengland on Twitter and use the hashtag #CPPEautumn18.
