Description

Patient Safety series May 2018

CPSC is delighted to offer all contractors in Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and on the Isle of Wight the opportunity to participate in the CPSC Academy. In these challenging times for the Health Services and Community Pharmacy, it has never been more important to develop our capabilities to ensure we can be the best we can be. There are many opportunities as pharmacy professionals to develop, and you will find the local engagement events on our CPSC calendar. In addition to events offered by CPPE, RPS Wessex and others, we will be supporting you four times a year with the Academy.

Pharmacy - Keeping our Patients Safe

It is our personal and collective responsibility to provide care to our patients receiving medicines so that they achieve better health outcomes and their quality of life is improved. We do all we can to keep our patients safe and yet drug-related problems resulting in adverse reactions and sometimes hospitalisation are common. Almost half of these are preventable. Last year, the World Health Organisation launched their third global health challenge to reduce the level of severe, avoidable harm related to medications by 50% over the next 5 years, globally. More recently, the NHS has commissioned a report on patient safety in England and established a working group to make recommendations.

We all play an important part in achieving these goals. Patient safety is a key priority and responsibility for every pharmacy professional, their employers, the pharmacy sector and NHS.

Please join us for the first Academy series to make more of a difference:

  • Understand the context for changing medicines-related harm – why it is so important

  • Define our purpose and role in community pharmacy to keep patients safe

  • Consider the impact of medicines-related harm; sharing personal experiences

  • Explore why and how medicines-related errors occur – prescribing, dispensing and patient-initiated

  • Identify practical ways to improve patient safety in your own practice; taking a broader approach

  • Know what to do if an error occurs

  • Have a simple action plan to implement with your team

  • Complete a Revalidation CPD entry

There will be some simple pre-workshop reflection to complete before attending so that you can contribute fully to the event. This will be sent to you 2-3 weeks before the event or on registration.

The meeting will commence with hot food at 6:45pm, for a 7:30pm start.
