PSS Medication Therapy Management Training Programme Module 4: Geriatric Syndromes 2

About the PSS Medication Therapy Management Training Programme

With a rapidly ageing population and rising incidence of chronic diseases in Singapore, polypharmacy is a prevalent and pressing problem. There is a growing need for effective medication management services to optimise medication use, especially in primary care to keep patients well in the community.

The PSS Medication Therapy Management (MTM) training programme aims to equip pharmacists with the clinical knowledge and skills essential for provision of MTM services. This set of skills enables pharmacists to help patients with effective and safe medication use, advancing public health and patient care. It also serves to educate and empower patients in the management of their condition, and improve medication adherence. This programme adopts a blended-learning approach developed to impart knowledge and skills required for a systematic approach for MTM. It comprises the following components:
