New resource in the campaign to tackle over-medication.

The resource, called ‘Preparing to visit a doctor’, aims to equip social care staff to plan with an individual for a review of their psychotropic medication. It includes guidance for staff and an easy-read questionnaire to complete with the individual prior to the appointment. Decisions made at the appointment can be added to the form so that the person with a learning disability or autism has a complete record of their medication review.
