“Patients with dementia are often treated with several different medications and therefore prudent prescribing is necessary for optimal medication selection. Medication-related problems including polypharmacy, drug-drug interactions and inappropriate medications are very frequent in this population and therefore I will attend this conference to present to the participants possible pharmacological hints in real clinical practice to avoid drug-related problems. I expect diverse researchers and healthcare professionals from Slovenia and abroad to share common ideas and strategies how to cope with problems related to dementia.”

Assist. Prof. Matej Štuhec, M. Pharm., Ph. D. (34 y) is a Doctor of Pharmacy and a Board Certified in Clinical Pharmacy and Clinical Professor in Slovenia with a strong interest in the pharmacological management of mood disorders, particularly in psychopharmacology, medical errors, old age psychiatry, inappropriate prescribing and meta-analysis.

Assistant Professor Štuhec teaches clinical psycho-pharmacotherapy at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Ljubljana and evidence-based pharmacotherapy at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Maribor.

He has ten years working experience in the Psychiatric Hospital Ormoz as a clinical pharmacist consultant and five years as an ambulatory clinical pharmacist in a community Health Centre Ljutomer covering nursing home settings.
