The Dr Falk – UKCPA Gastroenterology Webinar Series consists of four webinars which will give the Pharmacist an overview of different aspects of gastroenterology in health and disease, specifically focusing on Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) and the effect of disease and surgery on drug delivery and metabolism. The practical management of IBD and the role of primary and secondary care will also be explored, along with the impact of COVID-19. The sessions aim to build on the Pharmacist’s knowledge as a series but can also be accessed as individual modules of particular interest.
The Dr Falk – UKCPA Gastroenterology Webinar Series is for any Pharmacist who is interested in learning more about IBD. You may work in gastroenterology and hepatology, general or acute medicine, emergency care, care of the elderly, GP practice or any other specialty.
The 90 mins sessions will be a mixture of didactic presentations, case studies and interactive live discussion between the speakers and participants.
By the end of this fourth and final session in the series, attendees will be able to:
describe the pharmacokinetics of orally administered medications in Gastrointestinal disease, in particular IBD
identify and compare the release characteristics and delivery mechanisms of different oral mesalazine formulations and examine why different 5-ASAs have similar efficacy at different doses
