With nearly 2 million page views in 2018, our learning section has gone from strength to strength this year and has seen a 20.5% increase in page views compared with 2017. We have covered topics ranging from syphilis and heavy menstrual bleeding, to lung cancer and stroke. We also published useful resources for two of the timeliest topics of 2018: revalidation and GDPR.

As always, our peer-reviewed CPD articles have been designed to meet specific learning objectives relevant to clinical practice, and all feature an online assessment for you to test your knowledge. Our learning articles cover topics related to pharmacy practice and pharmaceutical sciences, as well as soft skills to support pharmacists in their career development. All of our learning and CPD content is available on the RPS MyCPD app.

We will continue to add to our content library with more CPD and learning content in 2019; however, make sure you have caught up with the most-read articles of 2018:
