Hala Jawad “Quality Patient Care – a Pharmacists view”

GetAttachment-1

We’re delighted to welcome our guest blogger – Hala Jawad, a community pharmacist. 

Hello my name is Hala Jawad,  I’m a community pharmacist and a moderator for the RPS Public Health network .

Based in the South east of England, I have a particular special interest in patient-centred communications and with this in mind, have attended numerous training courses relating to the promotion of this topic.

I am very interested in the public health topics so this means I am keen to improve the health of the whole population as well as that of the individual.

I’m delighted to get invited to the World Health Innovation Summit – “TOGETHER, WE INSPIRE”  in Cumbria ,  on the 11th & 12 March 2016 where  patients,  clinicians, managers, voluntary sector,pharmacists,doctors and businesses have the chance to come together to improve quality patient care as a community. In addition we can achieve a person-centred approach, medicines optimisation, adherence and shared decision-making policies.

“According to the World Health Organization ,there are five interacting dimensions of adherence :

Social/economic factors,

Patient-related factors ,

Therapy-related factors,

Condition-related factors,

Health system and healthcare team factor”
