CPPE Corner: BNF 77 distance learning programme

CPPE Corner: BNF 77 distance learning programme

May 28, 2019

Learn how new recommendations and information in the BNF will affect your clinical practice in the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE)’s new course. We spoke to Sneha Varia, CPPE East of England Regional Manager, to find out more.

We are delighted to announce that our What’s new in BNF 77? distance learning programme is now live on our website.

This interactive programme accompanies the 77th edition of the British National Formulary (BNF), which was released in March 2019 and highlights the key changes through a series of case studies.

The programme contains ten case studies that help you keep up to date with significant changes in the BNF, and should take around one hour to complete. The aim of the programme is to help pharmacy professionals identify situations in the healthcare setting where the management of a patient is affected by these changes. The case studies cover topics such as diabetic neuropathy, cardiovascular risk prevention and Alzheimer’s dementia.

After completing the programme, participants will be able to locate information on the latest changes in the BNF and recommend appropriate courses of action based on knowledge of the patient and the new information in the BNF.

As this programme is interactive, you will be able to type notes in the answer boxes and save your answers to the case studies by saving the PDF to your computer , or you have the option to print it out.

This programme, which is available to all CPPE registrants, can be accessed from: www.cppe.ac.uk/programmes/l/bnf77-p-01

The accompanying e-assessment, which will enable you to complete a CPD entry on the learning towards your revalidation, can be found at: www.cppe.ac.uk/programmes/l/bnf77-a-01
