AWTTC hosted its second Learning at Lunch rapid therapeutics update

The online event was attended by a wide range of health care professionals and students from all over Wales.

The bite sized updates included heart failure, National prescribing indicators and Pharmacogenomics as well as all the latest news from AWTTC.

First to present was Dr Aaron Wong, Consultant Cardiologist and Physician at the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend who gave an engaging session on heart failure, the Fantastic Four, Ironman and Agent K.

Next Dr Geraint Jenkins, Consultant Cardiologist and Lead for Heart Failure at the Regional Cardiac Centre, Swansea and Vanessa Morton, Clinical Pharmacist, Estuary Group Practice, Gowerton emphasised the need for heart failure patients to be on the right medication as quickly as possible and to the highest doses possible.

AWTTC Senior Pharmacist Claire Thomas gave an update on National Prescribing Indicators and their priority areas, demonstrating how national prescribing indicators play an important role in supporting the safe and effective use of medicines.

Followed by Sophie Harding, Pharmacogenomic Lead from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society who gave a very interesting introduction to pharmacogenomics and developments in Wales along with the key UK wide strategies and approach to genomic implementation.
