Our Platform

Our cloud-based platform offers a flexible learning and assessment environment for organisations looking to measure and improve prescribing safety and skill. Designed to support remote teaching and learning, our platform is accessible from anywhere in the world, at any time, on any device. 

 

Our platform hosts a range of assessment and learning products, all self-marking, with formative and summative assessment options available. Students can access detailed feedback on optimal and sub-optimal answers, and content written by expert pharmacologists, pharmacists and clinicians to give them the best learning opportunities.

 

We also offer platform licensing, in which you use our platform to run and deliver other learning and assessment content.

 

For Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists & More 

Our assessment and eLearning platform is now being used by healthcare providers as well as medical, nursing and pharmacy schools all over the world.

 

Our products are accessible and flexible, designed to support self-guided as well as class-based learning. With content written by expert pharmacologists, pharmacists and clinicians, they offer an unparalleled ability to develop and test the prescribing knowledge and skills of students, trainees and experienced clinicians alike.

"The BPS Assessment platform is different and innovative; it’s due to the quality of the content, and our ability to combine it with a robust peer review process in Canada. We can ensure the content is appropriate for a practicing physician."

Dr Susan Brien
Director of Practice and Systems Innovation, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada

"As medical educators scramble to move all assessments online, there is a huge need for the PSA to be delivered remotely. The PSA is innovative and there is nothing similar available - it assesses CPT and prescribing skills, including writing prescriptions. I would recommend it to institutions in the USA and other countries as a formative assessment."

Dr Anne M Holbrook
Director, Division of Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology, McMaster University

Global Partners

We are proud to work with a growing list of global partners, including the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, the National University of Singapore, and medical schools across Australian and New Zealand, to improve prescribing practice and reduce medication errors.

Our Experts

Professor Simon Maxwell

Medical Director

“Prescribing and supervising the use of medicines has certainly been the greatest challenge in my role as a clinician. Prescribing offers the opportunity to bring great benefits to patients but also has inherent risks. The learning and self-assessment materials BPSA has produced will be of value to all who are required to prescribe as part of their day-to-day work, whether they are just starting their career or are looking to refresh their knowledge and skills”

Dr Lynne Bollington

Dr Lynne Bollington

PSA Editor In Chief

“BPSA assessment materials are written and peer-reviewed by front-line clinicians and pharmacists to ensure they reflect clinical practice and meet national/regional guidance. Each formative question comes with in-depth feedback giving the learner clear, evidence-based explanations to help inform their day-to-day prescribing practice. Our prescribing questions are unique in their ability to instantly score and provide feedback on candidates’ individual prescriptions.”
