Primary Care Professional Support: Consultant Pharmacist support

Primary care pharmacy professionals can benefit from the expertise of Consultant Pharmacists. We will be inviting Consultant Pharmacists to record key advice that will be helpful to primary care colleagues when managing their patients. This will include supporting patients recovering from COVID-19.

In the first of this series, we hear from Lelly Oboh: Consultant Pharmacist for Older People

Making decisions during a pandemic – a real-life example (14 mins)

Accompanying powerpoint slides: Making decisions during a pandemic – a real-life example

  • This podcast discusses how a consultant pharmacist can help colleagues in primary care with making decisions during a challenging time.
  • Using INR warfarin monitoring as an example, the recording highlights how shared decision-making is just as important in difficult situations and how to the ‘BRAIN’ tool can be used to consult effectively with a patient. We discuss how consultation tools, rather than hindering clinicians at busy times, can be helpful and improve consultation outcomes.
