November 22th, 2021
The Central Catalonia Chronicity Research Group (C3RG) has celebrated its annual conference, this year under the name 'Experiences and new challenges in the adaptation of the prescription in fragile patients with multimorbidity', with 150 people registered. The meeting, which took place on 9th of November at the Aula Magna of the UVic-UCC, gathered together more than a thousand participants between face-to-face and virtual attendees and served to share knowledge, generate spaces for reflection and align objectives on future projects in the scope of the prescription.
The general coordinator of the C3RG, Dr. Jordi Amblàs, was in charge of welcoming the event, which offered two round tables with various experts from Spain to treat, on the one hand, dementia and anticholinergic load, and on the other hand, territorial experience based on the application of the Person-Centered Prescription (PCP) model. The two tables were moderated by members of the C3RG Person-Centered Prescription Research Line: Dra. Núria Molist, from the Territorial Service of Geriatrics and Palliative Care in Osona and Ripollès, and Dr. Javier González, from the Pharmacy Service of the Vic Hospital Consortium.
The first table, on dementia and anticholinergic load, was attended by the associate professor of Pompeu Fabra University and geriatrician at the Parc de Salut Mar, Dr., Anna Renom; the leader of the Pharmacy Service of the Matia Foundation, Dr. Idoia Beobid, and the geriatrician of the Acute Geriatrics Unit of the University Hospital of Vic, Dr. Mariona Espaulella.
In the second table, focused on territorial experiences based on the application of the Person-Centered Prescription (PCP) model, Dr. Javier González, from the CHV Pharmacy Service; the clinical pharmacist and the family doctor of the Bages Basic Health Area, Dr. Carolina Rovira and Dr. Cristian Ayala, and Dra. Dina Barneto, geriatrician at University Hospital of Santa Creu in Vic.
