Workshop for Community & General Practice Pharmacists: WHO Third Global Patient Safety Challenge - Medication Without Harm

Agreeing our Commitments – Workshop for community and general practice pharmacists.

The Department of Health (DoH) is leading the development of a strategic response plan to the World Health Organisation (WHO) Third Global Patient Safety Challenge ‘Medication Without Harm’. The overall goal of the Challenge is to reduce severe, avoidable medication-related harm globally by 50% over the next 5 years. A symposium was held by the DoH on the 29th November 2018 in Mossley Mill, Newtownabbey to launch the WHO Challenge in Northern Ireland and obtain views and insights from a wide range of stakeholders to help develop our response.

Information gathered from this event and other existing medicines safety work aligned to the Medicines Optimisation Quality Framework has led to the development of specific commitments that aim to address the requirements of the WHO Challenge for Northern Ireland.

The DoH is currently consulting on these commitments and would like to invite community and general practice pharmacists to an evening workshop, hosted by the Pharmacy Forum NI on Monday 12th August (7-9pm) at Society House, 73 University Street, Belfast.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about WHO’s Global Patient Safety Challenge and contribute to the strategic focus for medication safety within Northern Ireland.


Knowledge, Support, Referral - Support Services Engagement Evening

The evening is designed to afford an opportunity for pharmacists to engage with and learn from key support groups and organisations in Northern Ireland. The focus will be on ensuring that a direct connection is made between the activities of the organisations and the work of pharmacists. It is intended that in addition to knowledge of the specific services, pharmacists will be equipped to identify specific need when it presents and refer on to the appropriate support service/s and/or assist the patient to self-refer.

The groups who will attend are:

NI Chest, Heart & Stroke 
Pancreatic Cancer Action 
Carers Support Services (HSCB)

In all cases the focus will be Northern Ireland specific and regional in outlook.

The learning outcomes for the evening will be:

Increased Knowledge of the work of the charity/organisation & the support/s they can provide
The ability to make a direct connection to pharmacy and pharmacy practice
The ability to identify patients requiring support
Understanding how to refer patients to these services
Where appropriate, improving patient’s self-efficacy through self-management & self-referral
Information stands, networking and refreshments will be available from 6.15pm. Info packs will be provided.
The event is free to attend and will contribute to CPD.
