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 Sepsis Optimise programme launched

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Sepsis: Focus on sepsis management for people in hospital Optimise programme.

This programme aims to support pharmacy professionals to optimise treatment and aftercare management for patients with sepsis in a hospital setting.

Our Optimise programmes enable you to work through the clinically-focused learning with your colleagues at a time that suits you.

Completing this programme will develop your knowledge of the Sepsis Six bundle, help you to recognise the importance of rationalising medicines in a person with sepsis and enable you to discuss the aftercare management of people with sepsis.

The programme consists of 20 minutes’ pre-reading and a 40-minute group learning session. There are a number of activities for you to work through with your colleagues including discussions on clinical consultations, clinical challenges and decision making.
