CPPE Corner: Learning to support November Quality Payments review point

October 20, 2017

New learning programmes launched by the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) can help community pharmacy contractors in preparing for the Quality Payments Scheme. We spoke to Samantha White, CPPE’s North West regional manager, to find out more.

The November review point for the Quality Payments Scheme is fast approaching, so make sure that you’re prepared by using the wide range of learning programmes that we have to offer to support you meet the quality criteria.

We have events running across the country to support pharmacy professionals. Our Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults two-hour workshop will prepare you to complete the related CPPE Safeguarding: Level 2 assessment, and ensure that you meet the patient safety safeguarding criteria.

Contractors need to show that they have accessed the Summary Care Record (SCR) as part of the digital domain criteria for the scheme. Our Summary Care Records (SCRs) – making the most of them workshop can help maximise the opportunities that SCRs present, improving clinical outcomes for patients.

To achieve the public health requirement of the Quality Payments Scheme, the pharmacy needs to be classified as a Level 1 Healthy Living Pharmacy. Individuals can help their pharmacy work towards this by attending our Leadership for Healthy Living Pharmacies all-day event or participating in our self-directed e-learning course, Introduction to public health.

To book a place at these workshops and access other CPPE learning resources to help you meet the quality criteria on 24th November 2017, visit our website at www.cppe.ac.uk
