This is the first of three webinars organised by the Elderly Care Group.
This session will go into depth on the medicines used for dementia and empower pharmacists to feel more informed on these medicines.
The webinar will be of interest to all healthcare professionals, particularly pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who work in all areas looking after patients with dementia.
After this webinar, participants should be able to:
- Describe how these drugs work
- List 2 significant side effects/contra indications
- Make 2 suggestions on how they can support optimising their use
