Webinar: Managing Medicines in Imaging and Radiotherapy Departments

Published: 22 January 2019 Ezine

The legal and standards framework for the administering and managing of medicines in departments is complex – and getting more so.

The CQC and other regulators expect there to be clear and robust policies and procedures in place, backed-up by clear evidence that they are being followed.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency says that effective medicines management is: The clinical, cost-effective and safe use of medicines to ensure patients get the maximum benefit from the medicines they need, while at the same time minimising potential harm.

The Managing Medicines in Imaging and Radiotherapy Departments webinar will be hosted by Sue Johnson, SoR professional officer with lead responsibility for medicines, and Dianne Hogg, programme manager, Chief Professions Officers’ Medicines Mechanisms Programme at NHS England.

During the course of the webinar, they will bring you the latest information and guidance for medicines management specifically relating to imaging and radiotherapy departments. 

What will the webinar cover?

  • The complexities of the legal regulatory frameworks under which radiographers and associated professional staff are able to prescribe, supply and administer medicines will be unpicked
  • An update on Specialist Pharmacy Services’ templates for Patient Group Directions for common contrast agents will be highlighted
  • New guidance documents from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society about the safe and secure handling of medicines will be available for review with direction to relevant sections
