Dr Karen Miller

Consultant Pharmacist for Older People, Medicines Optimisation, Ulster Hospital, Belfast

Karen Miller has a PhD in pharmacy and has worked as a medicines information and clinical pharmacist for 25 years before taking up post as a consultant pharmacist for older people two years ago.

Karen and Kevin Madden are presenting Medicines Optimisation on a Frailty Ward.

This presentation will outline how a Medicines Optimisation pharmacy service was introduced to a Frail Elderly Ward. Patient related outcomes from this service will be presented to show the benefits of optimisation in this vulnerable group.

Frailty recognition tools and medication review documents will also be discussed to outline how they can be integrated into practice and help to improve medication prescribing and reduce harm in the older person.

It is aimed at any profession that may interact with an older person with frailty.
