bulletNPCi – “NPCi is a new and radically different NHS learning resource designed specifically for busy health care professionals and managers. The content covers prescribing, therapeutics & medicines management. The information is contained within this virtual building. This makes searching for content really intuitive. The philosophy here is ‘bite sized chunks’ – small amounts of the best of the summarised evidence and information on topics you are likely to need because you encounter those conditions or situations often. To supplement your knowledge you can also listen to recorded workshops, read text, test your knowledge and join in discussions”
