CPPE have been commissioned by Heath Education England (HEE) in conjunction with NHS England, to provide clinical assessment skills training for Devon pharmacists participating with the DMIRS pilot. We are excited to be working with Devon LPC to promote our next event in Plymouth.

The DMIRS: clinical assessment – essential skills event is a full day practical workshop; led by a GP medic tutor working with two CPPE tutors. By attending the workshop, you will have the opportunity to develop and practise key skills which will support you with the effective delivery of the DMIRS pilot and will help to prepare you for future clinical services delivery for example, the new national NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service which is being commissioned from this autumn, which will bring together the national NUMSAS and local DMIRS pilots into one national service.

What was the most positive aspect of the event?

Very interactive session, having a GP presenting, using (practical) skills – very informative

Training about proactive clinical history taking and watching a GP in a ‘consultation’

Learning to take medical histories and different approach to clinical complaints

Plenty of time to practise clinical aspects and discuss them

Very fun and interactive, really enjoyed the practical examination session

Getting a perspective on the future

Which ideas will you implement when developing your everyday practice?

Changing my approach to consulting with patients – open questions – golden minute

Use I2C5, LICEF, SOCRATES when taking a patient history

Open mind – considering all possibilities – asking the right questions to get max information from the patient

We look forward to sharing this development opportunity with you!
