Welcome to the Brighton and Sussex Centre for Medicines Optimisation (BSCMO) blog. The blog, written by members of the Centre, will provide regular updates on clinical science, clinical practice and educational research projects currently running at BSUH and UoB. It will also provide commentaries on new developments in the arena of clinical pharmacy and medicines optimisation. To our members we will provide news on upcoming research grant calls in the area of medicines optimisation, and a electronic research discussion forum. Please visit our main website for specific details on our research projects and staff at: https://www.brighton.ac.uk/bscmo/index.aspx
The Brighton and Sussex Centre for Medicines Optimisation (BSCMO) is an exciting venture that has been set up jointly by the School of Pharmacy Biomolecular Sciences (PaBS) at the University of Brighton (UoB) and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust (BSUH).
The BSCMO focuses on:
- increasing our understanding of how to use medicines safely and effectively
- optimising medicines-related clinical practice
- facilitating the design, delivery, and evaluation of effective medicines-related education and ensuring that education is informed by clinical research.
The BSCMO is looking to collaborate with clinicians and scientists from all disciplines to help solve problems related to medicines use that will ultimately improve the patient experience.
