Our Spring Workshop on taking care of patients with neurological disorders was a great success.
During two days, about 100 participants were involved in plenary lectures and workshops on this theme.
We had invited some outstanding speakers like Peter Sandor, Chief Physician Neurology, Michael Orth, head of the Neurozentrum Siloah in Bern, Olaf Rose, head of Impact institute for research in pharmacotherapy in Münster, Claude Vaney, Chief Physician of the Berner Klinik Montana, Maja Sercic, Policy and Science manager at Medicines for Europe and Kalveer Flora, Chief Pharmaceutical Officer’s Clinical Fellow at NHS LPP and Rheumatology Lead Pharmacist. They gave very interesting and interactive lectures on New options in migraine therapy, the Tourette syndrome and MS as examples for cannabis use, about clinical pharmacy services for patients with Parkinson's disease and last but not least about modernizing access to medicines via your trusted pharmacist.
It was clear that a multidisciplinary approach definitely has its advantages. But most important, we stressed the fact that clinical pharmacy is not just hospital pharmacy but also being executed in community pharmacies. This was well illustrated by Markus Messerli, PCN-S President, in his opening speech, where he referred to the Romans, who were excellent bridge builders to connect areas. He showed that this bridge building is also essential in clinical pharmacy.
