Coloplast ProAct Manager Webinar - 23rd January, 1pm - 2pm
On 23rd January 2018 we welcome Adele Booth – Regional Business Leader (NHS England & Wales), John Pelan – Product Manager IT and Jan Leonard - Chief Commissioning and Redesign Officer, Southport & Formby Clinical Commissioning Group, South Sefton CCG to introduce and showcase ProAct manager.
We have approached several companies that provide stoma and continence devices to offer them to showcase their support packages to CCGs. These tools are the company tools and are not endorsed by PrescQIPP but provide an opportunity for commissioners to hear about the offerings. We have asked companies to ensure that the webinars are non-promotional. We will not provide a list of attendees to the companies but instead will leave it to individual CCGs to get in touch if they would require any further information.
All PrescQIPP subscribers can sign up here.
Skills and training framework preview launched
Following much consultation with the community this year, we are now ready to deliver a first-stage preview of the framework that will underpin our work in 2018, and beyond. In the documents linked below, we provide detail on a number of tasks, skills, knowledge areas and categorisations to help define the work that is done by extended medicines teams, extracted from the database we'll use in early 2018 to build support tools for the community. We hope that 'yule' find them a useful start to our big plans in this field.

Bulletin 204 Launched - Trimipramine
Trimipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) that has been subject to significant price increases. Consequently, it does not represent a cost-effective choice of treatment. This bulletin reviews the use of trimipramine with resources to support stopping or switching treatment in depression in adults. Audit tools including a template patient information/switch guide are provided to support implementation of change.
Bulletin 203 Launched - Items which should not routinely be prescribed in primary care
This overarching summary document supports the implementation of the NHS England Items which should not routinely be prescribed in primary care guidance. It discusses the spend on items included on the list, evidence base for inclusion in the list and exceptional circumstances in which prescribing may be appropriate.
