Abstract:
Older people living in care homes have high levels of morbidity and are prescribed multiple medicines. Inappropriate prescribing (for example of antipsychotics), suboptimal management of long term conditions and a lack of medication review have been identified in this setting. It was hypothesised that a pharmacist could review the medicines of care home residents leading to potentially beneficial outcomes.
