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.

Academics training pharmacy students

Our learning materials are designed for pharmacy professionals, but your undergraduates can access student editions of selected programmes during their time at university. You and your students can download some of our programmes for free from the educational resources section of the BPSA website, including learning on antimicrobial resistance, consultation skills, dispensary-based calculations, using the BNF and medicines reconciliation. 

Use A-Z of CPPE programmes and assessments to find the right learning materials to support your group learning sessions; encourage your undergraduates to plan and deliver learning to their peers and maybe build in an element of peer assessment of facilitation skills.

Think about creative ways to include our learning in your MPharm curriculum and tell us about these.

Our tutors visit their local Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to promote CPPE learning to pharmacy undergraduates. Contact your local tutor to find out more.
