UBC Therapeutics Initiative (TI) in partnership with UBC Continuing Professional Development (CPD) are proud to deliver a 2-day course on combining evidence & clinical pharmacology to improve drug therapy on 23-24 October 2015 at Surrey Memorial Hospital. The course will provide up-to-date, evidence-based practical information on prescription drug therapy for family physicians, pharmacists and nurse practitioners.
Although primarily aimed at prescribers (MD’s, NP’s) and pharmacists, this course will appeal to any health professional who wants to learn and think about the scientific evidence behind what we should or should not be doing with prescription drugs. Lectures provide reviews of best evidence for common syndromes including hypertension, cardiovascular disease, geriatrics and infections. Small group workshops focus on topical issues such as deprescribing (reducing polypharmacy). The course has been accredited for 10 Mainpro-M1 credits and application for CCCEP credits has been made.
