    Medicnes in Older people & the BNF


    YOU will also need a DT (Drug Tariff ) for part 2

      CPPE is cheap - but it's neither quick nor easy - Sometimes wholesalers run day courses (at a price) which virtually guarantee MUR accreditation.

            I saw advert in C&D and contacted Sigma. I would suggest you contact Medway and ask where holding courses. I had to stay away overnight, so be prepared to travel.

              I just tried the CPPE MUR and failed section 1, but now that I tried it I wish I'd tried it earlier because I thought it was fairly easy. There was one question that I knew the answer to but accidentally pressed the Next button before selecting the right answer, so I don't know if that's why I failed, surely they don't expect you to get all the questions right. The annoying thing is that they don't allow you to go back and check or change any answers you put down, and you can't try the other sections until you've passed the ones before. So now I have to wait 6 days. Some one told me that Medway have stopped doing their MUR accred courses.

                My friend failed section 2 three times - after speaking to CPPE apparently some of the questions are instant fails if you get them wrong so whilst you do not have to get everyone right, you do have to get the important ones right - just you do not know which is/are the important ones.

                Did Medway myself but did CPPE parts 1 and 2 to see if I could see where she was going wrong and I failed part 2 first time round. Best advice I can give is go with safest option first, then with published option, and finally if no answer fitting one of those pick what you would do in real life!!

                  I failed section 2 about a dozen times! Luckily then found an Alliance help folder which got me through.

                  For tips try this:

                  http://www.pharmacy-forum.co.uk/mur-...editation.html

                  That should help with the tougher ones in section 2


                  Section 3: The hardest part is making sure you fill in all the gaps! I failed once because I saw a space i'd mised just as I pressed Next!

                      The course itself took me less than a day, then it took 9-10 days between posting my case studies off and receiving the letter stating that I'd "passed". The official "certificate" came a few weeks after that, but the first letter was enough to get me accredited with the Local Health Board (I'm in Wales, I think things are a bit different in England).
