The AHSN Polypharmacy Programme: Getting the balance right webinar

Understanding the data webinars: 24 January and 16 March, 12-1:30pm

As part of the Polypharmacy: getting the balance right programme hosted by the AHSN Network and NHS Business Services Authority (BSA), two webinars are taking place to consider how best to understand and utilise available medicines data.

The programme aims to support local systems and primary care to identify patients at potential risk of harm and support better conversations about medicines by promoting shared decision making. One of the core principles of this is population health management.

To consider how best to understand and utilise available data, the AHSN Network and NHS Business Services Authority (BSA) are hosting a webinar on Tuesday 24 January and Thursday 16 March 2023.

What will I learn?

The event will share information and insights into how the NHS BSA polypharmacy prescribing comparators can:

  • Support primary care and wider health systems understand the variation in prescribing of multiple medicines
  • Identify patients who are more likely to be exposed to the risks that can be associated with taking large numbers of medicines or certain combinations of medicines.
