An Arden & GEM medicines optimisation pharmacy lead, specialising in diabetes care, has contributed a new chapter on management of Type 1 diabetes to the latest edition of the pharmacy textbook, ‘Drugs in Use’.
Published by the Pharmaceutical Press, the fifth edition of ‘Drugs in Use’ provides a practical printed and digital resource for pharmacists and prescribers, written as a series of case studies that guide readers through a clinical scenario to optimise treatment for an individual patient.
Arden & GEM’s lead pharmacist for primary care, Natasha Jacques, has contributed a new chapter to the edition on medicines for patients with Type 1 diabetes. As a member of the NICE diabetes guideline committee, the UKCPA diabetes and endocrinology group and with experience of delivering clinics for patients with complex diabetes, Natasha was able to bring significant expertise to this chronic condition case study.
By combining medicines expertise with experience of working across primary, community and secondary care, Arden & GEM’s medicines optimisation team is able to support Integrated Care Systems to deliver better outcomes for patients through identifying person-focused prescribing opportunities for a range of conditions such as diabetes.
