CPPE Corner: Free access to suicide prevention e-learning through CPPE

February 22, 2019

An e-learning course about suicide aims to enable pharmacy professionals to feel confident in discussing the subject with patients. Here we find out more about the course available via the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) website.

Public Health England and Health Education England have created a new e-learning programme, We need to talk about suicide: helping others to feel more confident to talk about suicide, which is now available for free via the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) portfolio on the CPPE website.

As suicide is a very sensitive subject, this e-learning course has been developed by a range of experts to help reduce the stigma around suicide and enable pharmacy team members to feel confident having discussions on this subject.

The programme is aimed at those working in healthcare who are in contact with the public, in whatever role, and is designed to be as accessible as possible.

Through four interactive video scenarios, this course aims to help learners identify warning signs and support on how to speak to someone that may be having suicidal thoughts. It gives the learner an opportunity to reflect on their learning, rather than taking a formal assessment.

The entire course takes between 60-90 minutes to complete and can be split into smaller sections and completed at your convenience.

GPhC members can access the free e-LfH portfolio through the CPPE website.

The e-Learning for Healthcare programme is a Health Education England programme in partnership with the NHS and professional bodies providing high-quality e-learning materials for the training of the health and care workforce across the UK. There are a wide range of other clinical and skill-based topics available such as sepsis, safe prescribing, mental health awareness and many more.
