The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) is rolling out its online accuracy checking pharmacy technician (ACPT) programme to equip community pharmacy technicians in England with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to safely and effectively undertake the final accuracy check of dispensed items.
The programme, which CPPE secured funding for from the Pharmacy Integration Fund, is to be completed within 12 months and consists of six core knowledge online learning modules, followed by a series of practice-based activities to build on the knowledge gained through this learning, develop leadership skills and enable the trainee to apply learning in the workplace.
Pharmacy technicians at all community pharmacies in England can apply and there are three cohorts left: January, February and March 2019. Applications will be accepted until the end of the preceding month (i.e. January 2019 applications will be accepted up to 31 Dec 2018) and until all places have been filled.
