Empowering clinical pharmacists to manage asthma effectively and improve outcomes for patients

Date: 16th April 2019

Cost: Free


Our interactive workshops will combine expert speakers and sharing of best practice by our clinical pharmacist facilitators who are conducting Asthma related services in their own practices.

These educational meetings have been fully funded by Napp Pharmaceuticals Limited and organised by Soar Beyond. The agenda was developed by Soar Beyond in conjunction with Napp. The speakers have developed the presentations independently from Napp but Napp have checked them for factual accuracy.

After became an independant prescriber in 2012. She now completes the annual reviews for Asthma and COPD patients in her GP practice. Anna recognises that respiratory is an area that community pharmacists could make a huge impact in, and advocates integrated working between both to share the workload with respect to:

  • Carrying out MURs on non-attenders of asthma reviews
  • Carrying out inhaler technique and adherence checking,
  • Monitoring SABA use and checking the appropriateness of rescue pack usage.

Anna runs a walk-in FENO testing clinic in her pharmacy. Seven surrounding GP surgeries send patients requiring FENO testing to her Pharmacy, the results of which are sent back to the referring clinician.
