  2. 2. Introductions
  3. 3. Previous meeting • Minutes from Northwest Medical Education Pharmacist Meeting 26TH May 2011 • Variance in pharmacist time and funding • Standardisation of training for our undergraduates • Continual learning, and record of continual learning • Regular meeting of the team to facilitate collaboration and sharing
  4. 4. Schools agenda • Prescribing and medication safety relevant to schools across the faculty: – Nursing – Pharmacy – Medicine – Dentistry • All schools require some uni-, multi-, and inter- professional learning in this arena
  5. 5. National agenda • National prescribing assessment • Prescribing • Prescription review • Planning management • Data interpretation • Drug monitoring • Communication about medicines • Drug calculations • Adverse drug reactions • Pilot stage at present • Summative examination from 2013-14
  6. 6. Obstacles • Dispersed placements – School based – Hospital based • Funding of resources – Pharmacist time – BNFs • Curriculum – Lacking? – Different?
  7. 7. Mehvosh • MRI- Do you send your 5th years prescribing scenarios? Who writes these? Can they be shared? • Can Kurt tell me more about the national prescribing exam? Question writing/modifying teaching/tutor guidance/existing teaching? • How involved are other pharmacists with the UPSAs (9&10)? Other examinations?
  8. 8. Paula • How can I find out what the students already know (or, rather, what they have already been taught) so I can build on this rather than duplicate? • Who decides what topics pharmacists teach? What do we think the most appropriate topics are (& for other years)?
  9. 9. Layla / Diane • What teaching do other trusts offer to the medical students and are there ways we could work together to prevent re- inventing the wheel? • Kurt, can you tell us what other prescribing teaching is offered to students by the medical school?
  10. 10. 5th year • Hospital based prescribing training – SSB block – 1 day training – 3 base hospitals at present • Community based prescribing – 3 sessions in SSB block – 2 base hospitals + pilot at MRI • Prescribing case based discussion – 1 session for all students – Teaching hospital block

(e) Select appropriate forms of management for common diseases, and ways of preventing common diseases, and explain their modes of action and their risks from first principles. (f) Demonstrate knowledge of drug actions: therapeutics and pharmacokinetics; drug side effects and interactions, including for multiple treatments, long-term conditions and non-prescribed medication; and also including effects on the population, such as the spread of antibiotic resistance.

(a) Establish an accurate drug history, covering both prescribed and other medication. (b) Plan appropriate drug therapy for common indications, including pain and distress. (c) Provide a safe and legal prescription. (d) Calculate appropriate drug doses and record the outcome accurately. (e) Provide patients with appropriate information about their medicines. (f) Access reliable information about medicines. (g) Detect and report adverse drug reactions. (h) Demonstrate awareness that many patients use complementary and alternative therapies, and awareness of the existence and range of these therapies, why patients use them, and how this might affect other types of treatment that patients are receiving.

  23. 23. Competencies in phase one • We would like students to gain competency in, or understanding of: – Concepts of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics – Mechanisms of drug delivery – How drugs are prescribed and regulated – Basic pharmacology applicable to drug groups in phase 1 PBL cases – Mechanisms of unwanted drug effects and drug interactions – Calculation and preparation of drug doses – Mechanisms for reporting adverse drug reactions – Complementary and alternative therapy, and purported mechanisms of action of these therapies – The evidence base for conventional and complementary/alternative therapies – How to communicate with patients and the health care team regarding medication (basic level skill)
  24. 24. Phase two: HLB • Multiple cases (main and supplementary) • Recorded lectures • e-learning • e-prescriptions • relevant pharmacology into the module - in an integrated way
  25. 25. Phase two: HLB • Demonstrate an understanding of the pharmacology of the common drugs used in relation to each listed disease. Whenever long term drug therapy is warranted the students should be able to discuss the issues related to long term drug therapy: side effects, drug interactions, effects on life style, pregnancy, lactation, teratogenesis etc.
  26. 26. Phase two: HLB • Discuss the role of non-pharmacological therapies including rehabilitation (in hospital, home and workplace), alternative therapies, management of chronic illness including palliative care and end of life issues.
  27. 27. Phase two: HLB • Plan appropriate evidence based drug therapy, including the provision of a safe and legal prescription for the common and/or important conditions linked to this module. This will include accessing reliable information about medicines • Negotiate drug therapy with patients (and their carers) and appreciate the effects of ageing and co-morbidity as well as concomitant therapy on drug safety and safe prescription
  28. 28. Phase two: HLB • Critically evaluate the roles of the major members of a multidisciplinary health care team and the basis of effective team management
