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.

Newly updated Documenting in patient clinical records e-learning programme

We are pleased to announce the launch of our recently refreshed Documenting in patient clinical records e-learning programme.

The aim of this programme is to support you with documenting patient clinical records that will enable the continuity of patient care and reinforce effective communication between healthcare professionals working in different sectors.

The programme gives an overview of the legal and regulatory requirements of pharmacy professionals when documenting patient clinical records, as well exploring the national standards and the purpose and structure of patient clinical records. The learning also includes a number of case studies so that you can put your learning into practice.

This e-learning programme is available to all pharmacy professionals and we estimate that it will take about six hours to complete.

Completing this programme will help you to recognise the structure expected when writing in patient clinical records and document details of patient consultations and clinical interventions concisely and accurately in patient clinical records.
