Newsletter - November 2016

New from CPPE

We are already in the third week of our European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) 2016 campaign. Friday 18 November is EAAD, and we hope you have your posters on display in pharmacies to take part in the antibiotic amnesty. If you don't have your poster, download it here, print it and display it so people know where they can take unused antibiotics. Click on the link above to take part and learn about our other challenges.

NICE has launched a new online learning tool - Food allergy and anaphylaxis. Developed by CPPE, the tool will help healthcare professionals to understand how NICE guidelines can be applied in a practical way to support those likely to have first contact with anyone experiencing food allergy or anaphylaxis.

NICE has also launched an online learning tool on Children’s attachment. This free online tool has also been developed by CPPE and is aimed at education staff and health and social care professionals who have contact with children and young people who are adopted from care, in special guardianship, looked after by local authorities or on the edge of care. Click on the link above to find out more and access the tool.

Our What's new in the BNF 72? interactive PDF works through the new recommendations, key clinical developments and safety issues brought about by changes to the BNF. The programme includes ten case studies for you to work through, offering you immediate reflection on your work, as well as additional resources and links.

Current events

Our Care homes, medicines and older people study day has been developed for those new to providing clinical services to care homes for older people or whose GP practice wishes to change the way medicines are used in care homes. This innovative session uses simulated practical activities to build your confidence, and you have the opportunity to view two films that bring the topic to life. Book your place today.

If you conduct clinical medication reviews as part of your practice, the Medication review study day is for you. This study day will help you to build your confidence and skills to undertake face-to-face clinical medication review skills. You will also develop your practical skills by working with medical actors. Although the events don't start until April 2017, places for booking is open.

Have you booked your place on one of our Epilepsy focal points yet?
