Building a practical collaborative approach to medication reviews to improve patient health outcomes.
2.0 MainPro-C/2.0 hours in length and does not repeat, limited registration to 30 people, and additional $100 will apply.
We will work through cases illustrated by videos to develop or improve our approach to rationalizing complex medication lists, or unnecessary medication, especially for older patients. Cases will be available in advance in the course syllabus, and registrants are welcome to submit their own cases in advance (see below). You may also bring a case as a BRIEF PowerPoint presentation (maximum 6 slides) to share with workshop.
This workshop will help you realize we are all dealing with this problem, and provide some simple tricks to help you make progress – whether a little at a time, or in leaps and bounds. Your patients and their families will love you more after this workshop.
Comments from previous attendees: “Small interactive group session, very empowering and inspiring”; “Workshop facilitators asked probing, controversial questions.”; “Thought-provoking content.”; “Makes you examine your beliefs and how you practice.”; “Case-based approach is great!”
