If you are currently, or have been, enrolled on the NHS England funded Clinical Pharmacists in General Practice, Medicines Optimisation in Care Homes or Primary Care Pharmacy Education Pathways you should not enrol on this SMR e-course. The reason for this is that the learning on these pathways will already have given you the skills and knowledge you need to provide SMRs under the specification of the Network DES.
Please note, to provide Structured Medication Reviews under the terms of the Network Contract Directed Enhanced Service (DES) "pharmacists must have completed – or at least be enrolled on – the Primary Care Pharmacy Educational Pathway (PCPEP) or a similar training programme that includes independent prescribing" and so participating in this e-course alone will not enable you to comply with this requirement.
The aim of this course is to equip you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours that you need to begin undertaking person-centred structured medication reviews.
