About the event

This on the couch conversation provided the opportunity for an honest conversation about why primary care pharmacy colleagues may hesitate to make or suggest changes to Parkinson’s medicines and how they can develop the confidence to make a difference in the lives of these patients.

Why it’s important

There is no cure for Parkinson’s and currently no medications which impact disease progression. People with Parkinson’s rely on the medications they take every day to control their symptoms and need individualised care to achieve this. Pharmacy staff in primary care can make a huge difference through support for medication review and optimisation in Parkinson’s.  This webinar shared information and ideas to show how the pharmacy team can add value to the care of these patients.

What was covered

  • A consultant pharmacist’s perspective on how the pharmacy team can contribute to optimising medicines in Parkinson’s
  • Examples of primary care pharmacy interventions and contributions
