RPS shares COVID-19 resources with Commonwealth pharmacists

RPS shares COVID-19 webinar resources with members of the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association (CPA).

The webinars are today made available as a CPD package to all CPA members across the world. Upon successful completion of related CPD quiz, CPA members will also receive certificate for their records.

RPS has worked with UK expert groups to develop this range of clinical webinars to support pharmacists during the COVID-19 pandemic. All webinars follow a Q&A format focusing on practical tips and sharing good practice.

RPS CEO Paul Bennett said:

“I am delighted that RPS and CPA have collaborated to bring this valuable resource to members of the CPA, many of whom already enjoy access to our high-quality professional development materials and networks.

“The RPS mission is to put pharmacy at the forefront of healthcare and by working with CPA in this way we believe we are taking another step forward in achieving this. I would encourage you to access these resources so that you can join us and the CPA in the fight against COVID-19”.

CPA, Executive Director Victoria Rutter said:

“This is an exciting and welcome development that reflects the ongoing and growing partnership between the CPA and the RPS. We thank the RPS, as one of our own member organisations, for their ongoing support and hope that the webinars prove a valuable resource for pharmacists around the Commonwealth and beyond, supporting them to upskill and enhance their own practice for the benefit of patients as they continue their essential work as key workers on the front line tackling COVID-19.”

CPA Trustee and RPS English Pharmacy Board Chair Claire Anderson said:

“As a Trustee of the CPA and Chair of the RPS English Pharmacy Board, I am delighted that RPS and CPA are collaborating on sharing COVID-19 resources. Traffic to the RPS COVID-19 hub has doubled during the pandemic and the resources including the regular clinical webinars have been invaluable to many people. I now hope many more colleagues around the globe will be able to benefit too.”

RPS Head of Education Beth Ward said:

“Now more than ever there is a need for the pharmacy profession to work together by sharing experiences and expertise in managing the pandemic. In the UK we have collaborated with expert groups across our profession to develop a COVID-19 Clinical Webinar series.

“We are delighted to be joining forces with the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association to share our resources to support the development of the pharmacy workforce across the wider Commonwealth.”

As we brace for a potential second wave of coronavirus, we know that pharmacy will be at the forefront of delivering healthcare.

Whether it’s flu vaccinations, dealing with local lockdowns or getting ready to fight a second wave, we need decisions and assurances from the Government now. We must make sure pharmacists get enough supplies of PPE and rapid access to testing in all care settings.

We will continue to work hard to give you the tools and guidance to do your job safely. And fight to make sure you get the recognition you deserve.
