Medicines Management in Palliative Care Education Course

The Pharmacy department’s Palliative Medicines Info Service held the 2nd Medicines Management in Palliative Care Education Course on the 5th November. Drawing on the principles of Palliative Care as they apply to the use of medicines, the course provided an exciting learning opportunity for pharmacist and other healthcare professionals with an interest in palliative care. This year, collaboration with the All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care allowed the incorporation of an online learning component via the Palliative Hub. Participants engaged in pre and post course online interactive presentations, case studies, problem solving activities and assessments, in addition to attending the face-to-face day. The course was attended by Pharmacists and other healthcare professionals from all over the country and was a great success.
