CPPE Seeing you better: Culturally competent person-centred care learning campaign announced


The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has announced they are running a learning campaign, Seeing you better: Culturally competent person-centred care, which will begin on Monday 13th September 2021.

This four-week learning campaign is designed to help pharmacy professionals actively seek knowledge about the experiences of people from different cultures to their own, to enrich their understanding, and to promote self-reflection on confidence and competence regarding cultural equity. Participants will learn the importance of sensitively asking questions, rather than making assumptions, regarding a person’s beliefs, values, needs and concerns.

Each week of the campaign will feature a range of activities, including self-reflection tools to help identify strengths and areas for development, a patient story that evolves throughout the four weeks, an e-challenge, and access to a new CPPE gateway page.

CPPE will also be hosting a Twitter chat on Thursday 30th September, from 7- 8pm, where they will engage with pharmacy professionals across the industry in discussing what cultural competency means.

Pharmacy Quality Scheme

Pharmacy professionals may want to consider participating in the above learning campaign as an action for the action plans, they are required to complete on antimicrobial stewardship, increasing uptake of COVID-19 vaccinations and weight management as part of the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS). The campaign also links in to the CPPE Health inequalities e-learning, which is also a criterion of PQS.
