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.

CPPE launches new quality improvement (QI) e-learning

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new e-learning programme - Quality improvement (QI) an introduction for pharmacy professionals.

This programme has been developed to give you an understanding of the basics of QI, so you are able to identity its relevance to healthcare and your area of practice.

The e-learning programme considers potential triggers of QI projects and introduces you to an overview of commonly used QI tools to enable you to identify a QI opportunity of your own.

The programme uses podcasts to illustrate how Craig, a pharmacy technician, identifies a problem in his workplace. You will learn how Craig engages with his colleagues to work through the issue to the benefit of the team’s patients. Throughout the programme, Craig’s project is revisited to allow you to apply your gained knowledge to practice.

The e-learning is fully accessible online and you can access it now at: www.cppe.ac.uk/programmes/l?t=Quality-E-01&evid=51466
