GP Masterclass is a huge success!

img_0332_smallThe DSRU held its third GP Masterclass in Effective Prescribing at the Royal College of Physicians in London last week, which was very well received. Delegates were educated in aspects of effective prescribing for depression, rheumatology, the elderly, statins, urinary tract infections and upper respiratory tract infections, with an emphasis on interative presentations and practical tips that could be applied in practice straightaway. Speakers were experts selected from primary care, secondary care, NICE and academia.

This Masterclass was sold out some time ago, but we are now taking bookings for our next GP Masterclass in Effective Prescribing, which will take place in Sheffield in May: click here for details and booking.

The next London GP Masterclass will take place in November 2017.
