Older People Network (OPNet) Annual Meeting – ‘A whole pharmacy approach to Structured Medication Reviews’


19 November   09.30 – 13.30

Our OPNet meeting will be a virtual conference with lots of opportunities to share and learn.

The context of the day is to explore a ‘whole pharmacy approach’ to delivering Structured Medication Reviews (SMR).

Lelly will provide an overview of opportunities with SMRs and there will be a series of short presentations from pharmacists discussing how they contribute to implementing SMRs in their own contexts.  Examples of useful tools and resources will be shared that support various aspects of the SMR process, and opportunities for Q&A with our panellists will be provided.

Objectives… At the end of the session participants will be able to

  • Describe opportunities that SMR presents to reduce medicines related risks and improve outcomes for this patient cohort
  • Identify their own role and the role of other pharmacy colleagues as well as opportunities for collaborative working
  • List and describe the role of common tools to facilitate the SMRs process (e.g case finding, consultation, communication and documentation)
  • Identify at least TWO actions to improve their own practice to deliver effective SMRs

We are aware that our usual face-to-face networking opportunities will not be available for this OPNet.  However at the end of the event, there will be an optional networking and facilitated discussion opportunity for anyone who would like to stay on.
