CPPE Corner: New Urgent care e-learning programme

June 26, 2020

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has developed a new e-learning programme on the role of community pharmacy in urgent care. Here CPPE tells us more.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our newly updated e-learning programme, Urgent care: the role of the community pharmacy and the NHS CPCS scheme.

This e-learning programme aims to help pharmacy professionals to identify how to deliver the NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) to a high standard and how to integrate the multidisciplinary team to support urgent care.

All pharmacy professionals can access the e-learning programme and we estimate that it will take about two hours to complete.

The programme consists of three sections and covers topics such as the NHS 111 service, algorithms, the role of community pharmacy in the NHS CPCS, and building networks.

Completing this programme will support you to reflect on and identify the skills that you need to deliver high-quality, person-centred clinical assessments and explain the role of community pharmacy in supporting urgent care pathways in the NHS that contribute to better patient experiences and outcomes.

The programme will also assist you and your team to ensure that people have a positive journey through the system when they need an urgent supply of a medicine, or support in managing a minor illness.
