Better prescribing practices: international approaches

Charter 4
Best Practice Theatre , Operational delivery

As instances of long-term conditions and multimorbidity continue to increase, it will become even more important to find the right mix of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical interventions to manage these conditions.

Achieving this long-term balance creates complexity for healthcare professionals, patients and the public. It will require challenging conversations about the future of care, sophisticated patient management and advanced training for clinicians across organisations and multidisciplinary teams.

This session will draw on NHS England's programme of work and best practice developed in Canada and Australia.
