The Professional Leadership Body for Pharmacy Technicians
Published: 7th January 2018
The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) have developed a new leadership and management programme for hospital pharmacy professionals.
This fully funded programme is open to mid-to-senior grade hospital pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who work in acute, community and mental health trusts.
Leading for change – leadership and management for hospital pharmacy professionals is for those who have completed their foundation level practice and are working at, or towards, advanced level practice.
The programme takes a blended learning approach, delivered over six months, and consists of four online modules supported by face-to-face workshops and workplace-based learning experiences.
The aim of the programme is to bridge the gap between foundation and advanced leadership practice, in order to develop leaders in the hospital pharmacy profession. It will also equip participants with the knowledge and skills to take on challenges effectively and lead in medicines optimisation to deliver better patient outcomes. The first wave of the programme was launched as a pilot in the South Central NHS locality, and CPPE have now rolled out nationally across the following regions:
The closing date for applications is 30 January 2018 (London – 26 January 2018).
