MUSN Monthly Webinar – Anticholinergic Drugs and Dementia


The Medicines Use and Safety Team are pleased to invite you to a Webinar.

The title is:     Anticholinergic Drugs and Dementia

Date and time:    THURSDAY 13 December 2018  13.00 – 14.00

Duration:             1 hour

Description:  There is increasing evidence that anticholinergic medication is associated with risks in older adults, especially in patients with dementia.

Current NICE guidance on Dementia recommends minimising the use of medicines associated with increased anticholinergic burden and to look for alternatives where possible. 

So far, identifying which drugs have an anticholinergic burden on cognition has been a challenge.

This webinar will provide an overview of the dangers associated with anticholinergic medication use in older people and introduce a web based app to aid with medication reviews for patients.
Presented by Delia Bishara, Consultant Pharmacist, Mental Health of Older Adults & Dementia, South London & Maudsley NHS FT

We are delighted that our webinars are very popular. As we only have 100 attendee places available we encourage people and teams to view and listen together (Perhaps also with lunch!). If you are able to do this, only one person needs to register.

In order to streamline the registration process, we are changing the way we manage registrations. In future all registrations will be approved and on the day of the event, access will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Once all our 100 attendee places are filled you will be unable to enter the webinar but can still dial-in.

A PDF of the presentation is available below, should you be able to connect by phone only. 

A recording of the webinar and presentation slides will also be available on this page website after the event.
