The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) is part of the Manchester Pharmacy School, within the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences at the University of Manchester. It is funded by Health Education England to provide educational solutions for the NHS pharmacy workforce to maximise its contribution to improving patient care.
The aim of this e-learning programme, which was developed by CPPE, is to support people and organisations who are considering, developing, authorising and using patient group directions (PGDs) to deliver NHS services in line with legislation and NICE medicines practice guideline (MPG2).
Whether you are a commissioner or a provider, this programme can support you. It signposts learners to a wealth of resources, including a PGD website which contains answers to frequently asked questions and includes information on competency frameworks for people who are developing, authorising, reviewing, updating and using PGDs. Access it today to learn how PGDs can be used in your practice as an appropriate means of patient care.
