Learning communities provide you with a flexible way to learn in a relaxed atmosphere. You and your colleagues choose the time, place and topic.
A CPPE learning community is a group of pharmacy professionals who meet to study a CPPE learning programme. You can set up a learning community with pharmacy colleagues from your work place, in your local area, or those from a little further afield who have common learning needs. You could invite colleagues from other professions to join you as well, although they cannot register to receive printed programme materials. As a group you choose any topic from the learning community listings and enjoy your learning at a time and place to suit you. You could even choose to meet virtually by Skype or Google Hangouts.
Learning communities can use our focal point and CPPE Optimise learning formats and the materials we have developed for the Clinical pharmacists in general practice and Medicines optimisation in care homes pathways. You can find a complete programme listing on the learning communities dashboard.
Benefits of being part of a learning community include:
One of the best things about learning communities is that groups who meet together regularly can discuss how they have put previous learning into practice. This means being able to celebrate what went well, but also getting advice on things that didn’t go according to plan, so everybody benefits from shared learning.
CPPE learning communities are available to all pharmacy professionals registered in England.
