Description

  This initiative aims to reduce the inappropriate use of monitored dosage systems by ensuring they are only issued on a case-by-case basis to address specific practical problems of medicines adherence. The inappropriate use of monitored dosage systems can make patients and carers less familiar with their medicines. The preparation and checking of unnecessary monitored dosage systems creates a significant additional workload for hospital pharmacies, which can be reduced.
