'The eupharmic patient: a new goal for pharmacy'
Over the last 150 years pharmacy’s focus has moved from the making and distributing of medicines to influencing their use. In this lecture Professor Barber will, for the first time, argue for a new, patient centred way of understanding the relationship between patients and their medicines. Calling on arguments around good prescribing, adherence, systems theory and technology adoption he will argue that there is a need for a new term – Eupharmia, which can also be a goal of treatment that pharmacists and other clinicians can work towards.
Nick is Emeritus Professor of Pharmacy at UCL. His work has been around poor prescribing and medicines use, and the development and evaluation of ways of improvement. The New Medicines Service came from his work; so far it is expected to save 180,000 quality adjusted life years and save the NHS £0.5bn. He has published over 200 papers and been awarded the Gold Medal of the Guild of Healthcare Pharmacists and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Lifetime Achievement Award. A former Vice-President of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society GB he also presented the BBC TV series The Victorian Pharmacy. Current roles include non-executive director of a mental health trust and leading the mentorship of Fellows at THIS Institute, Cambridge.
