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 :
Patient-related factors ,
Health system and healthcare team factor”
It’s noteworthy opportunity to meet and communicate with the lovely team from Cumbria which is the most north-western county in England, bordering onto Scotland. Attending will be :-

Dr Alan Smith – is the clinical director

Working with a wider team we plan to support Elderly people, children, those with a disability, vulnerability or complex need, thus playing a vital role to ensure the patients get the best from their medication. We will use the best available evidence to provide the optimum health outcomes for people .
