Great North Pharmacy Research Collaborative Conference 2019

05/07/2019 9:00 am @ St. James' Park

Event Details

Practice research, clinical audit and quality improvement are fundamental to improving the quality and care for our patients. The Great North Pharmacy Research Collaborative aims to bring together pharmacy colleagues from across the profession in the North East and North Cumbria to share, spread and adopt best and evidence based practice.

In line with the changes in the NHS outlined on the Long Term Plan, the theme for our annual conference is Pharmacy Working Together: delivering safer care. We are delighted to welcome Richard Cattell (Deputy Chief Pharmacist, NHS Improvement) and Paula Russell (North East and Cumbria IPMO Lead). Richard is leading England’s response to the WHO Medicines with Harm challenge and will share the national vision and help us think about what we can do locally to support safer practice. Paula will talk about system leadership and how we all can work across organisational boundaries to provide better and safer care.

We will showcase pre-registration projects and work undertaken by pharmacy professionals from hospital, community and primary care, as well as examples of research undertaken at our local academic institutions. We invite abstract submissions from all sectors of the profession for oral (several categories to select from) or for poster presentations (submit via https://bit.ly/2Da79bT). Crucially, this event will be an opportunity to meet peers and leaders from across the profession, to share, learn, support and be supported.By working together as one pharmacy team across multiple organisations and sectors we have a unique opportunity to improve quality of care, reduce risk of harm from medicines and increase efficiencies.

The days agenda and workshops will be confirmed shortly.
