Workshop on Prescribing Skills

Workshop on Prescribing Skills

 

 

About the Workshop

 

Medicines are the major tool used by healthcare systems to treat and prevent illness. However, there is clear evidence from around the world of sub-optimal use of medicines leading to poor clinical outcomes, avoidable adverse drug reactions, medication errors and wastage of scarce resources.

The South Asian College of American College of Clinical Pharmacology, in collaboration with the British Pharmacological Society, has organized a one day workshop on prescribing as a part of 10th annual SAC-ACCP conference (PCW-1) on Friday,  April 2020 in Mumbai.

The workshop will look at all aspects of training and assessing healthcare professionals as they prepare to undertake their roles as users of medicines in an increasingly complex environment. It will look to draw on experiences in India and the UK specifically and consider how we might plan for future improvements in Indian medical education.

 

Learning objectives:

 

At the end of the workshop, the participants shall be able to:

  • Describe some of the current shortcomings in prescribing practices in India, and at global level, and appreciate the need for prescribing skill training
