Knowledge, Support, Referral – Support Services Engagement Evening

  • Support Services Evening
    May 16, 2019
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

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.
