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.

e-workshop listing

We have developed interactive live online e-workshops which will be similar to attending one of our workshops - but from the comfort of your home! These events are run by CPPE e-tutors who will ensure you have a fun, interactive learning experience. You will have the opportunity for discussions in small groups as you do at our face-to-face workshops. Some of the benefits of this type of learning are:

  • you can take part at home or your workplace while still learning with others
  • there is less time and cost involved as there is no need to travel
  • you can choose to attend any of the online events - you will not be restricted by location.

Learning levels explained

We recognise that people have different learning needs. Some of our programmes contain core learning while others deliver more complex learning that is only required to support certain roles. We have three categories of learning (1,2,3) and have allocated each programme to an appropriate category.

Core learning. Builds on limited knowledge. Some background reading may be required.

Application of knowledge. Assumes prior learning.

Supporting specialisms. We may not be the provider and will signpost you to other learning providers.

Learning programmes from other providers which complement your learning.
