We will update information on this COVID-19 section frequently. NICE is currently looking at whether certain medicines (e.g. NSAIDs and ACE inhibitors) may increase the severity or length of COVID-19 illness.
Like all training providers, our live programme was suspended in mid-March in-line with the COVID-19 lockdown. While NICPLD has a considerable elearning portfolio, we wanted to explore ways in which workshops can be delivered remotely. One way is to use eWorkshops, the first of which is Preventing Skin Cancer, which was the subject of our regional programme.
Update on NICPLD workshops/regional programmes relating to COVID -19
NICPLD has cancelled all live workshops and regional programmes from April to June 2020, in line with QUB COVID-19 recommendations. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide regular updates in relation to the delivery of our programmes.
Workforce development programme, such as Foundation and Independent Prescribing, have also been postponed and we will contact pharmacists on these programmes in due course with information about rescheduling training and assessments.
