“The number of medicines prescribed to individual patients has grown significantly over the last 10-15 years. As the population ages and many people take an increasing number of medicines for multiple long term conditions, polypharmacy has become a key issue in health and social care.  Evidence suggests that multiple morbidity and the associated medications increases a patient’s risk of harm and contributes to hospital admissions and poor therapeutic outcomes. It can be particularly problematic in older people, particularly the frail.” Royal Pharmaceutical Society, 2018

Chaired by Ash Soni OBE, President, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, this national CPD conference focuses on polypharmacy: effective management and stopping medicines safely in line with the new Royal Pharmaceutical Society Polypharmacy Guidance.
