CPPE Corner: New patient safety focal point event

CPPE Corner: New patient safety focal point event

July 10, 2018

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) is running workshops to improve knowledge and skills on patient safety and risk management. We spoke to Annie Sellers, Learning development pharmacist at CPPE, to find out more.

Bookings are now open for CPPE’s latest focal point programme, Patient safety: an anticoagulant case study. This brand new focal point programme aims to provide you with background knowledge relating to patient safety and risk management, with the opportunity to apply this to practice.

Development of this latest focal point programme followed on from the success of CPPE’s Patient safety spring learning campaign. The focus of this campaign was on a real life patient safety scenario, to enable you to reflect on practice and minimise risk.

Pharmacy professionals have an integral role to play in improving patient safety. CPPE’s Patient safety focal point workshop can provide the knowledge and skills necessary for you to improve patient safety in practice, and effectively respond to and manage patient safety incidents.

Patient safety: an anticoagulant case study ties in with the World Health Organization’s ‘Medication Without Harm’ initiative, describing the principles of patient safety concepts and technology, while also ensuring that you can respond to issues of patient safety.

The programme also focuses more specifically on a case study about anticoagulation, to help you recognise risk associated with the condition, whilst ensuring they can confidently consult with those who are prescribed high-risk medicines.

CPPE focal points bring you up-to-date with expertly written material and learning with colleagues in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment.

Connect with those attending Patient safety: an anticoagulant case study workshops by using the hashtag #CPPEPS on Twitter to share your experiences and photos of events.

Book a place on Patient safety: an anticoagulant case study via the CPPE website.
