The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has announced it will be running a six-week learning campaign on patient safety, starting on 26 February 2018.

The campaign aims to help pharmacy professionals take an active role in the World Health Organization’s (WHO) third global patient safety challenge, 
Medication Without Harm
, through a series of six online challenges.

The challenges will require pharmacy professionals to reflect on their own practices and have discussions with their colleagues, friends and relatives. They must also carry out a risk assessment and make a pledge to make positive changes to reduce risk in their day-to-day work.

On completing all six challenges, individuals will receive a virtual badge to add to their CPPE learning record and a downloadable poster to display their commitment to patient safety.

The campaign will be supported by the CPPE’s Risk Management guide, which will be posted out to all General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) registrants.

The hashtag #CPPEPS will be used throughout the campaign to promote the importance of patient safety.
