Equip yourself to deliver high-quality services

Our learning portfolio will support you in keeping your knowledge and skills up to date in order to provide high-quality pharmacy services. We can help you to equip yourself with the tools to be service-ready and support the medicines optimisation and public health agendas. We have a number of programmes that support accreditation of advanced services such as medicines use reviews (MUR) and the new medicine service (NMS).

Our new NMS e-course New medicine service: improving quality and getting it right starts again in September. The programme supports you in completing your NMS self-assessment framework and gives you the opportunity to be part of an interactive learning community with tutor support.

Our e-learning programme Prioritising services, improving outcomes helps you address some of the challenges involved in providing high-quality services. You can hear from others how they have approached and overcome these.

The Declaration of Competence (DoC) system supports you in reflecting on and meeting the competencies to provide a service and enables you to be service-ready. We have been busy restructuring the DoC system to make it more user-friendly. You can download A guide to using the Declaration of Competence (DoC) system which takes you through a step-wise approach to completing your DoC to enable you to be service-ready. The DoC system is supported for use across England by Health Education England and endorsed by NHS England and Public Health England. Visit our Declaration of Competence page to access information about how our learning and assessment portfolio can support you in completing your DoC .

The NHS Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service DoC is the most frequently visited DoC on our website. Look out for the new CPPE e-learning programme Influenza which will support you in maintaining your competence for this service.

Are you a commissioner? To find out more about the DoC system and how CPPE can support you in the delivery of training for pharmacy professionals visit our Commissioners page.  

Meeting the national practice standards for consultation skills is a core competence for DoC. Effective consultation skills are fundamental to all pharmacy services and the Consultation skills for pharmacy practice programme supports you in working towards these standards.
