PUBLIC HEALTH & WELLBEING THEATRE
The recent paper-“Effects of widely used drugs on micronutrients” led me to search the literature for other examples of medications and their likely effects on nutritional status. My research has unearthed nearly 1500 references identifying over 4000 incidences of medications impacting upon the status of one or more of 23 micronutrients and become the subject of my PhD thesis. Whilst this data related to interactions with single drugs, multiple medications are commonly prescribed to treat one or more conditions. This presentation will examine these issues and the opportunity for pharmacy to engage in this dialogue and deliver evidence based advice.
