THE Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has developed three online CPD modules to support pharmacists in providing optimal Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) services to residential aged care facilities.
The three modules which all cover key topics relevant to these services are Providing a QUM service, Psychotropic medicines and Antimicrobial stewardship.
To accompany the modules, a suite of resources have been developed to assist pharmacists in providing QUM services.
Also available are fact sheets for GPs, medical specialists and aged care staff on changes to HMR/RMMR rules (including referral and follow-ups), QUM Plan template and Sample QUM.
