CPPE launch learning disabilities campaign for spring 2017

March 13, 2017

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has launched its next learning campaign today (13th March) to raise awareness of learning disabilities. The campaign will enable pharmacy professionals to reflect on how they can best support people with learning disabilities and their carers, and ensure they are able to engage confidently in consultations with people with learning disabilities.

The campaign will run for six weeks and will involve weekly challenges, including a new e-challenge and a distance learning programme; all General Pharmaceutical Council registered pharmacy professionals will receive a copy of the distance learning programme from CPPE in March.

Pharmacy professionals are encouraged to:

  • sign up to the campaign at: cppe.ac.uk/learningdisabilities and complete the weekly challenges;
  • make a pledge to stop over-medication of people with learning disabilities, autism or both;
  • follow the campaign on Facebook and Twitter using #CPPELD to keep up to date with the campaign and help spread the message; and
  • take part in the Facebook Live chat which takes place on 11th April 2017.
