Event description

Description

Conversations with colleagues across the East Midlands have confirmed an appetite for the review, in conjunction with potential industry partners, of current clinical pathways, transformation plans, innovations in order to identify sustainable solutions which can support the Medicines Optimisation agenda and targets across the East Midlands.

Specific challenges presented for the programme to provide solutions to include:

  • Workforce challenges relating (but not limited) to the increase of pharmacists roles in General Practice

  • Additional / new workloads – for example care home reviews, supporting patients to manage long term conditions, repeat prescribing

  • Self-care agenda – enabling patients to become more responsible for their own care

  • Changing patient behaviours towards over the counter medications

  • Aligning regional prescribing behaviours to national Medicine Optimisation guidelines

  • The challenge for Local Digital strategies on bringing multiple IT systems (across health and care) together – how to include pharmacy systems and different formularies

  • Pathway redesign possibilities presented by new drugs

Many pharmaceutical and related companies have expressed their interest in exploring opportunities to work collaboratively with the NHS, either assisting in the delivery of training and pathway change or through the supply of cost effective innovative solutions.

Delegates at the event will help identify ways in which innovative partnerships with industry can assist in addressing the challenges and improvement targets with medicines related STP transformation and QIPP programmes.

The event will include facilitated activities supporting the development and implementation of promising opportunities for innovative NHS / industry support programmes. The full agenda will be shared as soon as possible. Before the event please ensure that you select your preferred workshop here.
