Pharmacy Management has partnered with the Medicines Optimisation Innovation Centre (MOIC) of Northern Ireland to better communicate and promote the development of medicines optimisation throughout the UK and beyond.
The annoucement follows Pharmacy Management's recent partnership with the United Kingdom Clinical Pharmacy Association (UKCPA).
Chairman of Pharmacy Management, Ted Butler said: “We are very pleased that Professor Michael Scott and colleagues in Northern Ireland have agreed to become partners with Pharmacy Management to communicate the benefits and best practice examples of medicines optimisation.
Pharmacy Management was the first organisation in the UK to develop a national conference for medicines optimisation in November 2012 and we see this partnership as a great opportunity to build on that foundation.”
He added that the two organisations were working on an initiative for improving medicines optimisation in mental health, with an annoucement expected soon.
MOIC will be displaying a poster and be in attendance at the joint Journal of Medicines Optimisation-UKCPA meeting on Diabetes Medicines Optimisation in Manchester on Tuesday 17 May 2016.
