Event description

Description

Lunch and £75 Amazon voucher for attendees

The BRIT research project has established a learning healthcare system in which anonymised patient-level data are analysed on a monthly basis and results fed back to the clinical team providing an overview of the opportunities and challenges to improve antibiotic prescribing in their practice. This give much greater depth of analysis that other dashboards which are only looking at practice level data.

The first phase of BRIT is complete and has established the system to extract, analyse and return results, using data for incidental prescribing of antibiotics. Almost 100 GPs are currently using the BRIT dashboards in Manchester and East Midlands

Phase 2 will look at the challenges of repeat prescribing and introducing individual prescriber data which can be viewed within the BRIT dashboards

To help with this phase 2 development we are conducting workshops to develop best strategies for engagement and information requirements to support behaviour change including:

· Overview of recent efforts to optimise prescribing

· How GPs want to receive information on own prescribing practice

· Appropriate levels of prescribing

· Risk based prescribing

· Repeat antibiotic prescribing

· Peer comparisons

· Community of practice for repeat prescribing

· Data analyses you want to see (or not!)

This event is aimed at GPs, pharmacists, prescribing advisors. Please do not book tickets if you are not involved in the prescribing of antibiotics

Places are limited to 20 so please only book if you are going to attend - for more information call Francine on 0161 306 7491 or email francine.jury@manchester.ac.uk
