We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Optimise programme, Deprescribing: Focus on safe and appropriate deprescribing.
As a pharmacy professional, you can play an important role in deprescribing. This can range from identification of potentially inappropriate medicines through to discontinuing a medicine.
The programme aims to support you to recognise a person-centred approach to deprescribing that considers the patient’s perspective and experiences. After working through the programme with your colleagues, you will be able to apply a stepwise approach to the process of deprescribing from identification through to reducing or stopping a medicine.
Our Optimise programmes provide pharmacy professionals who work in a clinical setting with the opportunity to learn with colleagues in small group learning sessions. This learning format provides you with clinically focused learning from experts across the country to help you optimise your patients’ treatment in different topic areas.
