BPS Assessment has launched a new assessment accredited by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), UK. The assessment is available for members enrolled on the RCP Assessment and Continued Professional Development (CPD) scheme, which runs from 1st April to 31st March every year.
The new Safe and Effective Prescribing Assessment from BPS Assessment, is a comprehensive 30-item assessment that provides data-rich feedback, giving participants the knowledge and skills necessary to improve their prescribing abilities. It can help professionals assess their current understanding of medicines and treatments while earning 6 CPD points.
The assessment can be taken online via the BPS Assessment learners portal and is accessible any time and from any location, meaning it’s a really convenient resource for busy healthcare professionals looking for ways to add points to their CPD diaries.
CPD is a cornerstone in the development and maintenance of valid and reliable clinical practices. Through completing CPD training, healthcare professionals can stay up-to-date with the latest research, technologies, and best practices in their field. This ongoing learning helps healthcare professionals to adapt to the constantly evolving healthcare landscape and provide the best possible care to their patients.
Nowhere is this more relevant than in prescribing, where new drugs are continually added to the market and an ageing population sees more individuals suffering from chronic illnesses which require different medications and careful monitoring and higher rates of polypharmacy. In providing a new CPD accredited assessment, we hope to support clinicians at all stages of their careers, allowing them to identify areas for improvement, enhancing their knowledge and skill and which we hope will ultimately lead to improved patient outcomes.
