Training clinical pharmacists to better manage Type 2 Diabetes in GP Practices

Our interactive workshops will combine expert speakers and sharing of best practice by our clinical pharmacist facilitators who are conducting Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus 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.
