Quality Payments: CPPE learning packages now available

October 8, 2018

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has made available two learning packages which certain pharmacy team members will need to complete, if a community pharmacy contractor is planning to claim for two of the quality criteria at the February 2019 review point of the Quality Payments Scheme.

The first training package is the CPPE Risk management guide and e-assessment, which relates to the first element of the following quality criteria:

On the day of the review, 80% of all registered pharmacy professionals* working at the pharmacy have satisfactorily completed the CPPE Risk Management training; and

the pharmacy has available for inspection at the review point, at premises level, an example of a risk review that the pharmacy team at the premises have drawn up for a risk in that pharmacy that has been identified and prioritised with identified risk minimisation actions that the pharmacy team is taking.

PSNC has produced a CPPE Risk management record sheet  which contractors can choose to use to record details of the pharmacy professionals who have successfully completed the guide and e-assessment.

The second training package is the CPPE Children’s oral health e-learning (in the form of a video) and e-assessment, which relates to the second element of the following quality criteria:

On the day of the review the pharmacy is a Healthy Living Pharmacy level 1 (self-assessment) and;

80% of staff working at the pharmacy (including pharmacy professionals*) that provide healthcare advice to the public have successfully completed the CPPE children’s oral health training assessment.

PSNC has produced a CPPE Children’s oral health record sheet which contractors can choose to use to record details of the members of staff who have watched the e-learning video and successfully completed the e-assessment.

CPPE has also produced a Quality Payments learning resources document which offers support and guidance on how to achieve the quality criteria. Links to the learning packages, e-assessments and guidance document are available on the Pharmacy Quality Payments Scheme page on the CPPE website.

*Pharmacy professionals are pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
