Event Overview


Refresh your knowledge on cardiology and diabetes, and network with like-minded clinicians in an interactive day of learning.

Pharmacists from all areas of practice are increasingly being asked to step up to improve outcomes in cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Millions of our patients and service users are affected by these chronic conditions. That's why they have been highlighted as priorities in the NHS long-term plan.

Make the most of this opportunity and learn from our consultant pharmacist speakers who have both advanced practice and become leaders in their fields.

  • Describe the optimal use and management consideration for key drug classes that have had updates in their evidence-base or guidance;
  • Integrate the latest evidence into decision making for medicines optimisation activities;
  • Identify at risk patients and service users using evidence-based tools and assesments in line with the most up to date recommendations;
  • Incorporate patient-centred considerations when making clinical recommendations.
