Keeping patients safe when they transfer between care providers: Getting the medicines right.
A new report published by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society calls for improvements to the transfer of information about medicines when patients move between care settings.
Keeping patients safe when they transfer between care providers: Getting the medicines right outlines the results of a six-month project involving over 30 healthcare organisations which volunteered to implement RPS guidance on transfer of medicines information. The guidance was endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Physicians and the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and had a joint foreward from the Medical Director of the NHS, the Chief Nursing Officer and the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer.
