The Almac Diagnostic Services team are delighted to be attending the upcoming 47th ESCP Symposium which is due to be held in Belfast, Northern Ireland between 24th – 26th October 2018.
About ESCP Symposium
As the genomics revolution proceeds apace, it is becoming increasingly important within a number of disease states, to stratify therapy according to the genetic make-up of the individual patient, or in the case of cancer, the genetic / molecular pathology aspects of the tumour being managed. Clinical pharmacists must be at the forefront of this change in practice and lead the way in ensuring full adherence with the best evidence as it emerges. Other aspects of individual patients (including psychosocial) also influence their ‘phenotype’ when it comes to medicines use. Multiple risk factors influence a patient’s ability to manage their medicines within their home setting, with too many patients readmitted to hospital, with medication related problems, within the first 30 days post discharge. Some excellent work on evaluating risk factors for medication related problems has shown that specific pharmacy interventions can be targeted to patients based on their risk profile. A ‘one size fits all’ approach is wasteful of scarce resources and does not promote the effective and efficient care of individual patients. All aspects of clinical pharmacy practice will be discussed at the symposium, but we hope that the symposium theme will stimulate you to focus upon ‘personalised pharmacy care’.
The scientific programme will include keynote lectures, invited lectures, mini-symposia, workshops, oral free communications, poster discussion fora, and poster presentations.
