CPPE launches e-learning on NICE quality standards

September 25, 2013

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has launched its latest e-learning programme, Quality counts – from NICE quality standards to high quality outcomes.

NICE quality standards are a concise set of prioritised statements designed to drive measurable quality improvements within a particular area of health or care. These standards underpin the NHS Quality Outcomes Framework and are seen as key to delivering better outcomes for patients.

The learning was developed to support best practice within pharmacy and other healthcare settings, and to raise awareness of the importance of these quality standards in supporting a variety of positive healthcare behaviours.
The programme can be studied by any healthcare professional, as well as public health and social care practitioners. It will be of interest to anyone who wishes to know more about applying NICE quality standards within their role and workplace.

Commenting on the launch of the programme, Geraldine Flavell, Programme Manager and Regional Manager CPPE said:
‘Many healthcare professionals, public health and social care practitioners are not fully aware of what NICE quality standards are and the relevance of them to their own practice. Our e-learning programme has been developed to raise the awareness of what these quality standards should mean in practice and how they relate to pharmacy professionals, as well as other medical and nursing colleagues.’
