The i2i Network is delighted to keep building on our chronic pain e-learning designed for GP pharmacists.

This is an area where GP clinical pharmacists may not feel confident but can add immense value to patient care – we will hear this perspective from Scott Gill, Lead Pharmacist for Ards Federation of GP Practices in Northern Ireland and Dr Mark Ritchie.
