      Reviewing the outputs of the National PINCER Indicators (Plymouth) AFTERNOON SESSION

      ***Please note the same session will run twice on the same date, you are currently registering for the afternoon session*** Medication errors in general practice are an important and expensive preventable cause of patient safety incidents associated with morbidity, hospitalisations and deaths. Given the prevalence of medication errors, and the severity of harm associated with these, there is an urgent need to implement interventions known to correct these errors. The PINCER trial was developed to study whether a pharmacist-led IT-based intervention could reduce medication error rates within the primary care setting. Published in the Lancet (Avery et al, Lancet 2012; 379:1310-1319), the PINCER Intervention was shown to be a clinically effective and cost-effective method for reducing a range of clinically important and commonly made medication errors in primary care. PINCER is now highlighted in the new GP contract framework and add your local incentive scheme details here. In conjunction with the South West Academic Health Science Network (SW AHSN) Devon and Cornwall CCG will be hosting a series of action learning sets (ALS) that take you through the PINCER process to support the development of skills and processes in primary care in Devon and Cornwall CCG to ensure common causes of prescribing errors are identified and resolved and processes are implemented to prevent future errors. Registration and coffee from 13:00 for a 13:30 start.
