Supporting Medicines Safety for Older People through Research Would you like more information about the medicines you / your loved one take home when discharged from hospital so that the medicines continue to help? If so come and hear about our research in making medicines safer for older (65+) patients

Date: 28th February 2024 from 2 - 5pm Venue: Audrey Emerton Building, Eastern Road opposite the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton In this meeting, we will share findings from PRIME (Predicting Medication-related harm in older people after hospital discharge) 1 and 2 research studies and provide an update on PRIME-3 study progress. Our research group has developed a calculator to predict whether older people are at low, medium, or high risk of medication-related harm when discharged from hospital. In PRIME-3 study, we are using this ‘calculator’, together with an existing NHS initiative called the Discharge Medicine Service (DMS) to optimise medication safety. Hospitals involved in this research are: • Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton • Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust • Eastbourne District General Hospital • Southport and Ormskirk Hospital • Royal Stoke University Hospital

You are cordially invited to come and hear about our research and to ask questions.
