How to Use the Site

Last updated: Thursday, April 07, 2016

Pharmacists need clinical problem solving skills to deliver medicines optimisation. The Medicines Learning Portal supports tutors and learners by:

  • Providing learning that has been mapped against GPhC standards for the pre-registration year.
  • Equipping foundation pharmacists with basic problem solving skills before diploma, and addressing topics not covered by diplomas.


Progress with learning, and assessments


For pre-registration pharmacists, we have designed a Track Your Progress document that lists the entire content of this site. You can download the document and keep it updated with your supervisor or tutor to provide evidence of your learning. It suggests which topics you should complete. We also have an assessment document based on key learning objectives established by the GPhC. This was developed jointly with Health Education Kent Surrey & Sussex and can be used to assess pre-registration performance.

Foundation pharmacists can use the same Track Your Progress document to provide evidence of completed learning, and certain subjects are recommended to you. There is also an assessment document for MI rotations based on the RPS Foundation Pharmacy Framework that links to key content of this website. It has been developed in conjunction with the UKMi Education & Training Working Group.

Learning resources


This website comprises ten core Clinical Topics, some additional Specialist Topics, four key Professional Skills, and an On-call Training section.

PDF versions of every tutorial can be accessed by going to the home page of each subject. None of these downloadable versions include any of the interactive learning exercises. Throughout the Medicines Learning Portal we remind learners to visit the GPhC Plan and Record website to document learning as part of a CPD portfolio.

The following recurring learning resources are linked to many of the tutorials, but it may be helpful to find all of them in one place:
