Extension Seminar in Clinical Medication Management (May 2022)

8:30am Saturday, 28 May 2022
12:00pm Sunday, 29 May 2022

This seminar will be delivered by a combination of self-paced learning and a live virtual seminar. It is designed to help you increase your sphere of influence, impact on patient care and extend your clinical practice across the patient care continuum.  A 6-week self-paced virtual learning package focusing on clinical practice fundamentals will be followed by an interactive live online event taking place across two days to consolidate learning.  Virtual case-based discussions of complex clinical scenarios and small group activities will be used to develop participant skills in problem solving to optimise medication management and resolve medication related problems. Unsure if this is the right level for you? View the seminar level descriptors.

To foster greater interactivity and connection between tutors, presenters and attendees in the virtual learning environment, places are limited.

The self-paced learning package will be available from Friday 15 April 2022. It comprises a series of self-directed preparation questions and approximately 3.5hrs of presentation material, plus additional time to complete associated activities and required reading.

The live virtual component of this seminar will take place on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May 2022.

Please note: presentation recordings from the live virtual seminar will not be available.
