Mon, 2013-01-14 11:46 -- fatima.almeda

The QIPP elearning resources are intended to support healthcare professionals and prescribing managers in making best use of the NPC’s document, Key therapeutic topics – medicines management options for local consideration. They:
• Discuss the rationale behind the options suggested with regard to key evidence and national guidance
• Consider concerns likely to be expressed by healthcare professionals and prescribing managers
• Review prescribing trends.

These slides are intended to help clarify the issues around the prescribing of low-dose antipsychotics for the treatment of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia in support of the QIPP initiative. They can be downloaded to use in discussion with colleagues, or viewed online. Before using the key slides, it is very important to read the accompanying notes pages carefully and have a good understanding of the content and educational messages. The recorded commentary provides an introduction to the topic and highlights the key issues.
