Optimising Paediatric Medicine Event for Pharmacy Professionals | 8 August 2017
Alder Hey is pleased to offer a new education and networking initiative for pharmacy professionals working in hospital and community settings.
We are keen to establish the Alder Hey Optimising Paediatric Medicine education days with members from our local primary care, community teams and colleagues based in the district hospitals in the Northwest, North Wales and Isle of Man to support this initiative.
The “Alder Hey: Optimising Paediatric Medicine” days will be a key activity to further develop a “safe child” network in the North West but will also be open to other pharmacy professionals from throughout the UK. The meeting format will include:
- Clinical updates in selected therapeutic areas
- Example cases relating to medicines management and paediatric medication errors
- Tips and suggestions with regards to obtaining special medicines and paediatric formulations
- Develop network and contact links within the region
The day will be run by our expert team of specialist pharmacist from Alder Hey, and, when relevant, we will invite specialist clinicians as speakers.
