The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) are holding a joint conference on 20 April 2016 to explore how closer working between the professions can improve care for patients with multiple long term conditions.
‘The challenge of polypharmacy: from rhetoric to reality’ event is being held at the RPS headquarters in London. The conference will cover how pharmacists from all sectors, working in partnership with GPs, can prevent overdiagnosis and overuse of medicines in patients in a variety of settings.
Speakers will include: Sandra Gidley (English Pharmacy Board chair, RPS), Nigel Mathers (honorary secretary, RCGP), Martin Duerden (clinical senior lecturer, Bangor University) and Nina Barnett (consultant pharmacist, NHS Specialist Pharmacy Service).
