The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has launched the Medicines Safety app. This is free and funded by Health Education North West. It offers short quizzes for any healthcare professional to test their knowledge on high-risk areas for medicines safety incidents. The topics so far include: Insulin, Allergies, Opioids, Anticoagulation and Medicines safety.
It stimulates further learning so it can be used to generate ideas for CPD portfolios and to improve practice. You can also use it in group learning situations as a starting point for discussion on key safety issues.
Download the app free of charge from the App Store for iPhone/iPad users and from Google Play Store for Android devices. More topics will be released soon.
