The aim of this guide is to support pharmacy professionals in returning to community pharmacy or hospital pharmacy practice after a gap in professional practice.
We recognise that some pharmacy professionals who are returning to practice via the temporary register, or otherwise, may need to complete some continuing professional development to feel confident in their role and this will be different for each individual.
To help you reflect on where you are now, and to make sure the programme meets your personal learning needs, included two self-assessment frameworks: one for community pharmacy and one for hospital pharmacy. Completing the self-assessment framework at the start of the programme helps you identify the key topic area(s) you need to visit to refresh your knowledge for practice. Once you have completed the self-assessment, you can visit the topic area(s) relevant to your personal learning needs.
Once you have identified your own personal learning needs, the different topic areas in this programme will support you to:
Our e-courses are run online. The programme runs in Canvas™ and you will be registered by CPPE and informed of your login details. This e-course is self-directed. This means that you can work through the course at a time and pace that suits you. The course does build on each topic as you progress so we recommend that you work through the units in order. There is a menu on the left hand side of the page to navigate through each area and you can access each unit and its content separately.
