Polypharmacy: Getting the balance right

24/01/2023 12:00 pm to 24/01/2023 1:30 pm

Event Details

The AHSN Network polypharmacy: getting the balance right programme aims 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. One of the core principles of this is population health management.

To consider how best to understand and utilise available data, the AHSN Network and NHS Business Services Authority (BSA) are hosting additional webinars on 24 January and 16 March 2023. Over 900 delegates have joined these webinars so far.

The BSA will demonstrate how the polypharmacy prescribing comparators help us understand variation in prescribing of multiple medicines and identify patients more likely to be exposed to the risk of taking multiple, or combinations of, medicines.

The webinar will be introduced by Clare Howard, Chair of the Polypharmacy Prescribing Comparators Group, national Clinical Lead for the polypharmacy programme and Medicines Optimisation Clinical Lead for Wessex AHSN.

We encourage attendance from AHSN Network nominated polypharmacy and clinical leads; ICS medicines optimisation leads and Primary Care Network (PCN) teams, including GPs and pharmacists.
