Event Description

Pharmacy Management and the UK Clinical Pharmacy Association (UKCPA) are excited to announce a new joint conference, Pharmacy Together, which will provide the pharmacy profession with an incomparable event which promises to deliver exceptional quality education and skills development for both primary and secondary care pharmacy staff, bringing the sectors together to improve patient care.
 
Pharmacy Management and UKCPA have a successful history in working together to deliver high quality accessible national events for pharmacists working to improve medicines optimisation in the areas of Respiratory, Diabetes and Cardiovascular. The combination of the flagship annual conferences of each organisation builds on this success to enable a joining of their unique skills and experiences to deliver an exceptional event for the pharmacy profession and its partners.
 
The Pharmacy Together conference will offer an opportunity for pharmacists and pharmacist technicians from all points on the patient pathway and professional colleagues within industry to attend an event which will enable and facilitate knowledge exchange and professional development for practitioners from primary and secondary care working across several areas of practice.
 
The best of both organisations will be reflected in the expert-led interactive worksessions, networking opportunities and poster displays.
 
Pharmacy Together will be held on Friday 2 November 2018 at the Novotel London West, and will be free for practitioners to attend.
 

Peer discussions available at Pharmacy Together 2018

We are offering free peer discussion opportunities for UKCPA members at the Pharmacy Together 2018 conference.

The Pharmacy Together 2018 conference is an ideal opportunity to have a confidential peer discussion which can be used for your GPhC revalidation and your Foundation or Faculty submission.

What does the discussion involve?

The aim of the discussion (often called a case based discussion, because it focusses on a specific case, project or scenario) is that it is a supportive discussion between you and a peer. It is not an exam - you cannot pass or fail. The discussion will allow you to demonstrate your strengths and achievements and identify areas where you could develop further, in a relaxed and supportive environment.

The discussion will last between 20 and 30 minutes. We will match you with an appropriate pharmacy colleague with whom you can discuss a case, project or initiative you’ve been involved in. The topic or case you wish to discuss is entirely up to you. This could be clinical or patient facing, or it might be non-clinical - perhaps a service improvement initiative or a scenario involving leadership or management.

What are the benefits to me?

The GPhC now requires a peer discussion as part of your revalidation submission. The key points of the discussion are captured on a form which you can then submit to GPhC, and can also be used for your RPS Foundation or Faculty portfolio if you are building one. For more detailed information on the nature of the discussion and more, have a look at the GPhC guidance.

If you would like to book a peer discussion, please contact Marie Matthews at UKCPA on [email protected], stating your area of practice (for example, generalist, or if you specialise, state your specialist area), stage of practice (Foundation or Faculty), and UKCPA member number.
