FREE TRAINING EVENT FOR PHARMACISTS WORKING WITHIN PRIMARY CARE
As a pharmacy leader we wanted to give you advanced notice of some high quality training opportunities for pharmacists working in primary care that we hope you will be able to make your colleagues aware of. Morph are a pharmacists led, midlands based consultancy with an excellent track record in providing training for pharmacists. Our objective is to deliver relevant training that meets the needs of pharmacists working in all areas of primary care and that does not overlap or duplicate any existing or planned programmes.
MORPh Consultancy Director, Dr Duncan Jenkins, is also Specialist in Pharmaceutical Public Health at Dudley CCG and will facilitate this event. He manages a team of 30 practice pharmacists and therefore we are able to tailor this event to the practicalities facing pharmacists in practices and in policy implementation. The day will follow a set agenda but with an emphasis on group learning.
We are we are holding two training days covering pharmaceutical care of the frail elderly:
Monday 24th April 2017 in Manchester
Monday 15th May 2017 in Leeds
Both days will have expert speakers covering pharmaceutical care of people with Dementia and Parkinson’s disease as well as nutrition and hydration in the elderly and the management of incontinence. There will be opportunities for peer discussion and feedback. Both events will be fully catered and free to pharmacists working in GP Practices and CCGs.
Dr Duncan Jenkins, Specialist in Pharmaceutical Public Health, Dudley CCG
Will facilitate the day brining over 20 years of working in primary are. Case studies will be discussed throughout the day to ensure collaborative learning and sharing of best practice.
