Event Details

THIS EVENT IS NOW CANCELLED

The AHSN NENC Medicines Optimisation (MO) Programme is a collaborative vehicle directed by a steering group that incorporates members including Patients, Academia, Industry, Pharmacy, North of England Commissioning Support (NECS), Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and General Practice (GPs).


The NHS cannot afford not to optimise the use of medicines. Using a person centred approach the MO programme seeks to find opportunities to improve medicine usage and improve health outcomes. To date the MO programme has approached their work through directed MO projects and by collaboration with the other AHSN programmes and specialist groups.

The following ‘facts’ that have been central to our current projects illustrate just a few reasons why optimisation of medicines is key to the future of the NHS and local economy.

  • It has been estimated that between 30 and 50% of the 15 million patients with a long term condition do not take their medicines as intended. The number of people who are expected to have more than one long term condition is expected to rise to 2.9 million by 2018.
  • The number of prescribed items per year per person in England increased from 13 in 2003 to 19 in 2013.
  • Currently in the NENC region there are nearly 600,000 people over the age of 65 of which 10% are classed as frail rising to 25% at the age of 85 and nearly 50,000 of these people receive supported care. This number is set to rise.

 Come along to learn more and contribute on the following topics:

  • Explore working with STPs
  • Insight into the potential of polypharmacy metrics
  • Raising awareness of AHSN MO activity both nationally and locally
  • Reflect on the progress of clinical handover
  • A Person Centred Approach to Medicines Adherence

Organiser

The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria

The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) is dedicated to improving healthcare and supporting wealth creation through partnership working and promotion of innovation across the NHS, Academia and Industry.

With a remit to provide system-wide integration, we facilitate interactions with multiple partner organisations across the region. Principally we work with the NHS Trusts, CCGs and Universities which form our core membership, and we collaborate closely with many other stakeholder groups. We support the inclusive, collegiate approaches that are needed to address shared problems at a system level.

Wealth Creation and Health Improvement have a common requirement for innovation. The AHSN NENC supports all aspects of innovation across healthcare from creating a culture that supports the innovation through to the dissemination and adoption of effective practice and proven technologies.

We have therefore achieved the regional reach and the local buy-in that is necessary to deliver cross-organisational programmes to improve health and create wealth in the region.

The YouGov survey results from the Autumn of 2015 provide external validation of the work being undertaken by the AHSN NENC. With responses in the top third for 32 out of 33 responses relative to those of the AHSN Network Nationally, the North East and North Cumbria region are clearly leading the way in providing an effective contribution to the local innovation and health improvement landscape.
