Medicines management is one of the key patient safety areas
that the Trust is focussing on as part of our Recovery Programme.
Others include safeguarding, incident reporting and infection
prevention & control.
You can see a short video up-date from Andy
here, which describes use of medicines by
clinicians in the Trust and how, by increasing our knowledge of the
legislation that governs their use, we can improve the quality and
safety of care for our patients.
Importantly, understanding the legal aspects
of medicines in healthcare can help us practice with more
confidence and ensure that we avoid mistakes with our medicines
management when on duty.
