Medicines Optimisation for adults receiving social care services in community settings Webinar


Lelly Oboh Consultant Pharmacist for Older People at Guys and St Thomas’ and MUS Team member presented a packed webinar; managing to have the answers to queries in her presentation as they were raised .

“Can care workers administer controlled drugs or patches? Who is responsible for training care workers to give eye drops? Can care workers give medicines from original packs? Can a non-clinician write a MAR chart? Can a care worker give medicines from a family-filled ‘dosette box?’”

 If you have ever been asked these or similar questions, tune in to this medicines optimisation webinar for adults in social care or domiciliary care settings which focuses on supporting them to take their medicines.

The webinar aims to equip pharmacists with the knowledge to drive and lead best practice in their localities. It will consider recent guidance and recommendations from NICE NG67, CQC and Skills for care, and offer pragmatic safe and patient-centred options in response to  common problems encountered across acute, primary and community healthcare as well as and social care teams.
