Safety of medicines in care homes – resources available

The National Care Forum (NCF) has launched a suite of free online resources to help improve medicines management in care homes. The aims are to help those providing care services to improve medicines management, to help residents understand their rights, and to improve the safety of working practices, reducing errors.

The NCF is leading a partnership involving several of the medical and nursing colleges and other groups to address ongoing concerns about medicines prescribing, administration and management in care homes.
