Why is this project important?
iSIMPATHY is important because medicine reviews achieve the best outcomes for patients’ health and wellbeing.
Medicine reviews are also cost effective: not only owing to immediate interventions such as medicine optimisation, (which may result in deprescribing) but also because of the downstream effect reviews can have, such as reduced hospital admissions, time in hospital and other primary care and social care settings.
How to get involved and start delivering medicine reviews:
- Contact us: iSIMPATHY are inviting community and hospital pharmacists, hospital doctors, GPs and other primary care professionals in the target communities to get involved.
