Of course MOIC was present at the annual flagship event of Pharmacy Management.The theme was ‘Medicines Optimisation: in long term conditions, the Frail and the Elderly’. Many of these patients suffer from multiple long term conditions which makes their treatment much more complex. With increasing age the potential benefit reduces but the risks from treatment increase, suggesting that regular review and appropriate de-prescribing is likely to be in the patient’s interest.
