PrescQIPP Annual Award projects relevant to primary care
14th December 2022 – 12.45 – 13.45pm
We heard about two great MO projects that should make you stop, think and refocus.
Rachel Howatson, Senior CVD Pharmacist for SE London, talked about a quality and safety audit of direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) prescribing and monitoring. She covered its impact on patient safety outcomes alongside remodelling of SEL interface pathways for DOAC patients, local DOAC prescribing guidance for the ICS and DOAC monitoring process development.
Caryn Chan, Medicines Optimisation Pharmacist NECS, told us about a novel risk assessment tool CATALYST which identifies patients with an inaccurate label of penicillin allergy for de-labelling without direct oral penicillin challenge in primary care.
