How do we support the patient to take greater control of their medicines management and adherence?


Date:
Thursday 20 September 2018
Time:
9:30 AM to 1:00 PM
Location:
London. The exact location will be confirmed shortly.

The event will be jointly hosted by the Medicines and Pharmacy team with the Empowering the Person team from NHS Digital. It will explore how the team’s work links together around user needs and how we create an environment conducive to developments in this space. 
The agenda for medicines safety is growing, with a strong focus on reducing medication errors and avoiding medicines related hospital admissions. We are looking to understand the required ‘eco-system’ needed for you to be able to innovate within this area. It is also increasingly important we understand what opportunities are available now for patients to support themselves in this area.
The event will include an update on the medicines and pharmacy elements of the NHS app work.
