Our CPPE Optimise programmes offer hospital teams (pharmacy and multiprofessional) short, clinically focused reading and activities. They are specifically aimed at advancing your knowledge and skills, and we have worked with experts in the pharmacy profession to develop each programme. Optimise programmes include optional background learning, 20 minutes of preparation for a 40-minute small group learning session, and next steps to help you put your learning into practice. Our Optimise leaflet offers you an introduction to the format of these learning programmes or you can visit the Optimise section of our website to find out more and download materials.
We have a variety of learning programmes available to support hospital pharmacy teams. To access a range of clinical topics (for example, online or distance learning programmes), use our search facility at the top of the page or our A-Z tab to filter your options.
Increasing the number of pharmacist independent prescribers was a key recommendation of the Carter review, and we have a number of programmes to support prescribers. These include the Return to prescribing course for pharmacists who have qualified as prescribers but who haven't been able to prescribe in practice for some time.
