A very busy and lively webinar was held on 14 July 2021
At the end of this month’s webinar participants should be able to
- Explain the ambition to create and operate as a single Pharmacy workforce across an STP/ICS (aligning with IPMO plans) to improve collaborative working and improve medicines outcomes for frail older people
- Outline a plan using a bottom-up approach to identify, build relationships and share expertise with local frailty specialists in the acute trust or other care settings
- Identify specific learning or knowledge that will empower them to constructively challenge or query discharge medication (within their scope of practice) that pose a risk to frail older people
- Apply learning to undertake interventions in their daily practice to resolve common medicines related issues and reduce risks associated with problematic drugs (e.g opiates, antipsychotics) at the interface of care
