Achieving Appropriate Prescribing of Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs): Briefing paper for secondary care providers

This paper draws together information which will help secondary care providers make an informed choice about the strategies they could adopt to support safer prescribing of NSAIDs within their trusts. It supports the key performance indicators for NSAIDs already in place in primary care and can be customized to include local prices and usage details. It might also prove a useful summary to start discussion between commissioners and providers who wish to tackle NSAID prescribing in their localities from a quality or safety aspect.
