In the complex health arena, a key proposition is that no person acting alone is as effective as a team to drive best practices and outcomes. Another key factor supporting best outcomes is access to the best information to support optimal choices and the empowerment of the patient.
World class healthcare can only be delivered through an integrated system in which every part works to improve outcomes for patients. Quality has become a leading principle in healthcare and embraces patient safety, clinical effectiveness and patient experience.
The understanding of inter-professional teamwork often starts during initial education and training and should continue, in various forms, throughout a professional’s career. In addition, partnerships with patients and other stakeholders are becoming a more common feature of healthcare and the development of medicines, bringing both challenges and benefits. This session will explore some examples of how healthcare professionals, including pharmacists, patients and the pharmaceutical industry are working together to try to improve the care provided to patients. The value and impact of different partnerships with a special focus on patient-pharmacy partnerships will be highlighted.
