LUNCH & LEARN - Anticholinergic burden: Evidence into practice

No prior booking is required. Please use the following link to join this Lunch & Learn session: Please note this event will be recorded.

CLIC, in collaboration with North Cumbria Knowledge and Library Services, are planning a series of Lunch and Learns. These are 30 minute, virtual, informal sessions that take place at lunchtime - while you take a break and eat, you can listen to our invited speaker give a short talk sharing their experience of improvement work. The session is then open to anyone who has questions or reflections to offer.

Join us for this Lunch and Learn to hear from Helena Gregory (Pharmacy and Medicines Lead, North East & North Cumbria Integrated Care Board) on 'Anticholinergic burden: Evidence into practice'.

There is increasing evidence that medicines with anticholinergic effects are associated with an increased risk of cognitive impairment, falls and all-cause mortality in older people.

This session summarises the evidence, scoring scales and considers actions that healthcare professionals can take to maximise the benefits and minimise harm from medicines that may adversely affect cognitive function. With a particular focus on medicines used for urinary incontinence.
