About BPS Assessment

Our Mission - Supporting Improvement in Safe Prescribing Worldwide

Established in 2017, 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. 

Better Prescribing, Better Patient Safety

Our team of clinical experts create case-based questions with comprehensive feedback on all possible answers. These questions are packaged as assessments, which can be taken alongside related eLearning to support prescribing skills by teaching the core principles of clinical pharmacology. Through our bespoke, interactive, online learning platform we offer a range of case-based products that enable users to practice and improve their prescribing in a safe environment. Beyond practice and formative learning, we deliver the Prescribing Skills Assessment, our flagship 2-hour online exam, increasingly recognized internationally as the standard prescribing qualification.

The nature of our learning resources means that they can be easily adapted to suit teaching requirements across countries or regions. The cloud-based platform allows content to be accessed at any time, from anywhere and on any device, providing the perfect distance-based learning tool to support medical teaching curricula.
