The Neurology Academy are excited to launch the second of our Neuropharmacy MasterClasses for 2020. The MasterClass, designed for specialist pharmacists who are already working in neurology, has been created in response to the growing role and remit of the neuropharmacist. The two module course is ideal for those who are already specialists and want to enhance their skills in specific neurological conditions.
Developed in recognition of the essential role that neuro-pharmacists can play in a good neurology team, this Academy exists for pharmacy professionals who want to develop expertise in neurological conditions.
The MasterClasses will give you the opportunity to hear from experts in the clinical area, find out practical ways to manage patients, their drugs, and how to optimise the treatment of neurological conditions. In addition, as a MasterClass graduate, you will join the network where we encourage participants to share best practice to continue the learning. We also encourage participants to undertake a project to evaluate their own professional practice or service evaluation which will be shared on the website, and presented at future MasterClasses.
As part of the Neuropharmacy MasterClass experience, we offer you the chance to have a peer discussion (case based discussion) with a member of the Neurology Academy faculty. This can be used as part of your revalidation with the GPhC, faculty submission for the RPS or just to allow you to reflect on your practice with another specialist pharmacist. If you are interested in undertaking this optional activity please let us know, and we will arrange for this to take place during the MasterClass, or at a later date if you would prefer (by phone, webinar or face-to-face if logistics allow).
The benefits of a peer discussion, are to allow you to reflect on your practice as a specialist practitioner, rather than to test your knowledge. The discussion is a supportive conversation which will enable experiences to be shared. For the discussion, to be most productive, it is useful to bring a situation, problem or case to be discussed. This could include a challenging patient, service development problem or leadership/management situation.
What will it cost?
The course is fully funded which includes all meeting materials, meals, a travel allowance and one night of accommodation at the meeting venue on the night during module 1 and module 2. Accommodation costs for the night prior are covered for delegates who live more than 2 1/2 hours travel away. Your travel grant will be discussed once your application has been approved and is for UK delegates only.
Terms and conditions
Please read our terms and conditions before you apply for a MasterClass.
Our work is made possible because of the wider support we receive, and we are incredibly grateful. Thanks to that support, we are transforming healthcare and changing the lives of people living with neurological conditions.
