Shared decision making for structured medication reviews
AHSN are launching new resources to help patients participate fully in Structured Medication Reviews with Shared Decision Making.
During this lunchtime webinar, you will learn about:
The importance of shared decision making when undertaking Structured Medication Reviews with patients.
How our new range of free, evidenced-based resources can support and help prepare patients invited for a Structured Medication Review with their GP, pharmacist or other healthcare professional. The resources are available in a range of formats and languages from the AHSN Network website: Resources to support patients having a Structured Medication Review – The AHSN Network.
Professor Tony Avery, GP and National Clinical Director for Prescribing, NHS England, will present on key strategic and policy drivers and highlight why Structured Medication Reviews and shared decision making are crucial in tackling problematic polypharmacy and unnecessary medicines and lead to better patient outcomes.
Clare Howard, Clinical Lead AHSN National Polypharmacy Programme, will share findings from the AHSN pilot to test the patient-facing resources ahead of national rollout.
