Supporting Improvement in Safe Prescribing Worldwide
BPS Assessment is the learning and assessment arm of the British Pharmacological Society, whose mission is to improve prescribing skills among medical and non-medical prescribers. We partner with organisations across the globe, working collaboratively to understand local prescribing needs and practice, to deliver the best possible resources at all levels of training.
Let’s Work Together To Improve Prescribing Skills
All over the world, avoidable medication errors are having real-life implications to patient safety. In the UK alone, for example, the cost of avoidable medication errors is around £98.5 million every year. BPS Assessment is working to change this through a suite of online learning resources that help clinical professionals prescribe safely and effectively.
