Polypharmacy aid

Sunderland CCG have asked us to share the Prescqipp Polypharmacy tool, use of which is being encouraged locally by the Medicines Optimisation Team.

This tool has been designed to support decision making at different stages of the prescribing and medication review. Considerations for each stage are listed and as this resource is further developed will be supported by decision aids and e-learning. The 2015 NHS Scotland Polypharmacy Guidance and the 2014 All Wales Medicines Strategy Group Polypharmacy: guidance for prescribing also offer definitions, examples and guidance to support the headings in this tool.
