ACPE UAN: 0475-0000-15-024-L05-P. An application based activity.
Pharmaceutical care involves a systematic process which is patient focussed and underpins a robust and professional philosophy of pharmacy practice. As part of this process, the pharmacist needs to co-operate with the patient and other members of the multi-disciplinary team to design, implement and monitor a therapeutic plan. To standardise and aid the hospital pharmacist in conducting the process in an organised way and to ensure maximum use of the pharmacist's skills, a systematic approach has been drawn up. This is a stepwise approach which results in formulation of a pharmaceutical care plan for an individual patient, identifying care issues with associated actions to resolve and prevent the issues. The pharmacist needs to be familiar with sources available such as the patient notes, medication records and the patient or carers, to develop a systematic approach to data gathering as part of this overall process. This workshop will provide participants with an overview to the systematic approach and will then focus on data gathering, with emphasis on using the patient as a source of information.
Attendance to this workshop will be limited to 50 participants.
Participants will be provided with materials to take home following the workshop.

• To illustrate to participants the systematic approach to pharmaceutical care;
• To familiarise participants with sources of information available and how these complement each other;
• To outline to participants how to effectively plan, prepare and conduct a patient drug history interview;
• To discuss skills required to conduct an effective patient interview.
At the end of the workshop, the participants will be familiar with:
• the systematic approach to pharmaceutical care and where data gathering fits into this;
• sources of data gathering available and ways of making best use of each information source.
