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.

Life skills - developing your potential e-course bookings now open

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new e-course, Life skills – developing your potential.

This e-course aims to help you to reflect on your personal skill set and identify how you can develop a range of life skills to reach your full potential.

This course will run as an interactive live course, which will start on Monday 7 October 2019 and run for eight weeks. We estimate that you will probably need to commit to four hours of learning each week.

The course covers eight main skills including overcoming barriers and time management, delegation and assertiveness and effective communication and networking.

Each week you will be given specific learning tasks, which may involve reading learning materials, accessing websites and completing quizzes. In addition to sharing experiences and learning from each other in the discussion forums, you will be able to reflect on your learning by completing a personal reflective journal.

There is no specific time that you will need to log in as the course is flexible, but each week there will be a different discussion topic which will be available for you to view and contribute to. By participating in an active online learning community, you can share ideas of best practice. There will also be support from an online tutor who will be available for questions and will monitor some of the interactive activities to help stimulate discussions. 

This course is suitable for all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians – whether you are just starting out in pharmacy and looking to develop skills that will help you in your career, or are an experienced healthcare professional reviewing your practice.

Our Life skills e-course will be open for bookings on 2 September 2019 and you can book onto the course via: www.cppe.ac.uk/programmes/l/life-e-01

Once registered, you will receive an email with your log-in details for the Canvas learning environment.
