Event Description


A regular series of fortnightly webinars to support professional development and enhancement of patient care by the sharing of best practice.

Utilising PM Trainers from the successful Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy (CLIP) programme to deliver practical learning sessions of skills designed to aid personal and organisation development.

To complement skills acquisition there will be a second session in the webinar to exchange best practice which will be delivered by presenters whose satellite sessions have been significantly oversubscribed at Pharmacy Management Conferences.

It is anticipated the PM ACADEMY will be very popular so early registration for each Webinar is recommended.

This webinar has been sponsored by Thornton and Ross who have had no input into the design or content of the webinar.



Calming the mind and body - Imogen Gray

This session will explore mindfulness and gratitude to identify some simple methods which you can embed in your everyday routine to help you to improve your resilience. You will learn how to train your brain to better handle stress, as well as how to calm your mind and body when stress causes racing thoughts and tension. 

The role of pharmacy in reducing falls in older people - Derek Taylor; Assistant Director of Pharmacy - Governance and Risk, Royal Liverpool University Hospital

One third of those over 65 years and half of those over 80 years of age will fall at least once a year. Falls have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life and general health as well costing the NHS at least £2.5 billion per year. This session will focus on risk factors for falls, ways to identify those patients at higher risk of falls, current national falls guidelines and the need for multifactorial assessments. It will also highlight those medicines that can contribute to an increased risk of falls and how Pharmacy can contribute to reducing this risk of falls by a detailed medication review in order to reduce the risk of further falls as well as optimising treatment for osteoporosis. This input can occur in a variety of healthcare settings as part of a multidisciplinary review service.
