The management of common clinical conditions is an activity being undertaken to a much greater degree by pharmacists and pharmacy teams. Pharmacists and the wider health professional team really need to remain vigilant and competent when prescribing, dispensing or managing patients in this area.
Understanding the nature the risks and the clinical skills required to assess and manage patients presenting with common clinical conditions is now a priority for all of us.
It is in this context that it is with considerable pride we announce that Stephen Andrew Whyte will deliver an interactive session on the various clinical skills required to manage people with respiratory presentations.
This session will be interactive and very much focussed on practical considerations like clinical skills. Case studies and a live question and answer session at the end will hopefully help bring the topic to life in an engaging way for you.

Stephen undertakes regular clinical work as a senior clinician in the paediatric department of a busy London teaching hospital; assessing, diagnosing and treating children presenting with a plethora of illnesses independently.

Feedback from previous live events
“This was an excellent session, I learnt a lot, and have a lot of follow up reading to do, I wasn’t familiar with the GINA report and some of the other resources and websites mentioned are new to me too.”
“It’s brilliant that you have organised this session, it’s definitely an area where pharmacists can do so much more to improve care and help prevent deaths. You mooted perhaps a further session – I think this would be very worthwhile to reinforce learning.”
