Satellite Description

The presentation will explore what it means to put patients at the heart of decision-making during pharmacy consultations and interventions. It will draw from current best practice guidance and use case examples of older people living with frailty, multi-morbidity and polypharmacy, to highlight the key issues facing pharmacy teams in clinical settings as well strategies to deal with them.

Lelly Oboh is a Consultant Pharmacist based at Guys and St Thomas NHS Trust (Community Services) with over 20 years’ experience, managing polypharmacy in frail older people within general practice and community-based multidisciplinary teams 

She has championed the development of innovative patient centred care medicines optimisation models with extended roles for clinical pharmacists and technicians within community integrated care teams. These models have focused on active engagement with older people (carers), developing personalised solutions to improve adherence, better care co-ordination at handover points and improving medicines use in social care. They have been successfully replicated across the NHS

Her NHS Specialist Pharmacy Services leadership role involves facilitating the delivery of local and national medicines optimisation imperatives by encouraging a ‘do once and share’ approach and shaping the development of local ‘health community clinical pharmacy teams’

Lelly is well published and sought after to speak or share her expertise. Her areas of interest include patient centred care, deprescribing, frailty, care co-ordination, adherence, transfer of care, medicines use in care homes and social care settings.

This session is both foundation and advanced level.
