NENC Polypharmacy CoP “Anticholinergic Burden”

14/12/2022 12:30 pm to 14/12/2022 2:00 pm

Event Details

The Academic Health Science Network North East North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) is supporting the delivery of a National Polypharmacy Programme in partnership with the NENC Integrated Care System (ICS).



This community of practice hopes to support local systems and primary care to identify patients at potential risk of harm and support better conversations about medicines by promoting shared decision making.


  • Support the delivery of the AHSN National Polypharmacy Programme: Getting the Balance Right
  • Foster a culture of engagement, collaboration, learning and innovation to reduce problematic polypharmacy for our population most at risk from harm
  • Improve use of resources and reduce duplication.

Each CoP will cover different topics for discussion to support this programme.

Agenda: TBC


During the session

We will keep participants muted whilst we are presenting. This avoids distracting our speakers and also reduces sensory stimulation which is important for some people. However, if you wish to ask a question you can do this by adding it in the chat box. Please feel free to turn your camera on and off as you need to. If you need it off the whole time, that is totally fine.

If you need a break at any time during the session then please leave the meeting and re-join again when you feel ready.


Information on accessibility features in Teams can be found here: and you can contact us with any other accessibility questions.


The webinar will be recorded and will be available after the session.
