Welcome to the evidence based polypharmacy reviews and the 7 step process.

The training has been developed as part of the iSIMPATHY project. To find out more about iSIMPATHY visit our website


This training equips pharmacists, doctors and other healthcare professionals to undertake an in-depth review of prescribed medications.

It focuses on highlighting the public health challenge of polypharmacy, and the urgency to address it to prevent medication related harm and hospital admissions. The process is a person centred approach to review appropriate use of medication using the “7 step process” where shared decision making is paramount and centred around “what matters to the patient?” and the effective use of medicines.

This training has been approved by the Royal College of Physicians (United Kingdom) for 3 external CPD credits (code 138908). Successful completion of each module’s multiple choice questionnaires will result in a printable certificate including 1 point.
