Medicines optimisation in domiciliary settings – bridging the gap between primary and secondary care

17 September 2014
Older people living in domiciliary and care home settings may often be frail and vulnerable and recent studies have shown that at least two-thirds of nursing home residents have been exposed to one or more medication errors, some of which may have serious, potentially fatal consequences. Improved medicines optimisation will promote the safe and effective use of medicines as well as increasing patient involvement in their healthcare.

This day covers the journey of a complex patient with co-morbidities from clinic to hospital discharge via an in-patient stay. It will discuss medicines choice and optimisation, together with pain, infection and diabetic management. It will also cover how the patient is presented for surgery, including his or her pre, peri- and post-operative management, and the potential problems that may be encountered along the way.

This will be followed with an update on the management of sleep disturbance, an overview of the impact of critical illness on the pk/pd characteristics of antibiotics and an audit of UK antibiotic administration practice. The day will be wrapped up with an introduction to critical care research.
