CPPE are pleased to announce the Shared decision making programme, commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement, is now live and taking bookings for cohorts in 2021.
Pharmacists are seen as integral to implementing the NHS Long term plan and it is expected that all healthcare professionals will be encouraged to incorporate this model of care into their practice. Shared decision making will contribute to creating an environment for patients to feel valued and empowered, which can lead to improved outcomes for those accessing primary care services.
This new programme offers a comprehensive toolkit to gain the knowledge and skills to embed personalised care into your practice. Through six self-directed online learning modules, and two online workshop days, the Shared decision making programme offers pharmacists the opportunity to improve their consultation skills and re-evaluate their approach to patient care.
Have a look at this video, which outlines some of the key features of the programme and highlights the importance of shared decision making for pharmacists.
