Neuropharmacy MasterClass 2 – Module 1
This Neuropharmacy MasterClass is designed for specialist pharmacists who are already working in neurology and want to enhance their skills in multiple sclerosis (MS), headache disorders, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. Module 1 is looking at MS and Parkinson's, whereas module 2 will cover epilepsy and headache disorders.
Before returning for the second module, a service development / review audit should be undertaken back at your workplace, which will be presented back to the cohort at module 2. Learners will also receive mentorship while completing the inter-module project of their choice.

The course is fully funded. Your fully funded fee covers the costs of the MasterClass and the whole course must be attended in full. A cancellation charge applies, as per terms and conditions.

This MasterClass programme has been carefully developed by Joela Mathews and Rachel Dorsey-Campbell, both neurology pharmacists, to equip pharmacists with specialist skills in managing the different aspects of patients with neurology conditions. The course is ideally for pharmacists who are band 7 or above, and assumes a level of knowledge about the pathology of the conditions and their treatment options.

Developing neuropharmacists, supporting collaborative care
Knowledgeable pharmacists can initiate or support new treatment pathways, play an important role in patient education, medicine adherence, efficacy and safety, and provide advice to other healthcare professionals involved in the person's care. This Academy recognises the value of this essential role, and seeks to enhance pharmacist's clinical skills and build their confidence in managing a range of neurological conditions.
