Are you involved in medication management? We are updating two national quality use of medicines (QUM) publications and we would appreciate your input.
The Department of Health has engaged the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care to review the 2 QUM publications relating to the National Medicines Policy:
- Guiding principles for medication management in residential aged care facilities (2012)
- Guiding principles for medication management in the community (2006) (PDF, 281 KB).
The guiding principles support aged care facilities, clinicians and people taking medicines, and are focused on person-centred care.
Please review the updated publications and submit your feedback by 27 September 2021 by visiting the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care website.
Your input will inform the revision of the publications before they are finalised and published in 2022.
