NHS priorities

Whether it’s to prepare for the next Pharmacy Quality 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.

Welcome to CPPE's learning campaign on acute kidney injury

We chose to focus on acute kidney injury (AKI) for our autumn 2015 campaign because although it is an insidious and life-threatening condition, you and other pharmacy professionals in every sector can help your patients prevent it. Below is a slideshow of the numerous outstanding poster submissions we received during the campaign.

About the campaign

We have joined forces with the UK Renal Registry and their Think Kidneys programme to highlight the risks of acute kidney injury and encourage pharmacy professionals working in all sectors of practice to think about how you can help prevent AKI.

We have posted our new Acute kidney injury distance learning programme, a campaign leaflet containing six challenges and a Think Kidneys leaflet to all registered pharmacy professionals in England, so you should have received your copy by now.
