CPPE Corner: Return to prescribing course

CPPE Corner: Return to prescribing course

January 24, 2019

A course from Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education’s (CPPE) is enabling pharmacist prescribers to redevelop their prescribing skills. We spoke to Dianne Bell, Education supervisor at CPPE, to find out more.

We are pleased to announce that CPPE’s Return to prescribing course is back by popular demand. This three-day programme is delivered in two blocks over a three-month period and is open to any registered pharmacist prescriber in England who has been out of prescribing practice for over a year.

The aim of the course is to support you to regain the confidence and competence to prescribe by helping you to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and networks. This will be achieved through a variety of learning methods including individual learning, group activities, discussions and sharing of best practice. The content of the course is mapped onto the prescribing competency framework and will help you build a library of reliable, evidence-based information sources to ensure that you feel ready to return to your prescribing role.

The course will also help you to identify your learning needs and create an action plan which will address these needs, in order to build prescribing confidence.

There is no fee to attend our Return to prescribing course as it is fully funded by Health Education England.

As well as being great CPD and a significant step to developing your practice, this is an opportunity to collect evidence for your RPS Faculty application by providing evidence for the expert professional practice cluster. You will also benefit from peer review, which may contribute towards your revalidation submission.

The next available course is on 9th and 10th February, and 21st May 2019 in Manchester.

To find out more about the course and to apply, visit our dedicated webpage on the CPPE website.
