Archived July 2017 – Principles for older people and their medicines

· Medicines Use and Safety Team

These principles were written by the Steering Group on Medicines Management and Older People of London, Eastern and South East Specialist Pharmacy Services. The principles are prefaced by a letter giving further background. The document identifies overarching statements defining what needs to be in place to ensure that older people are supported to take their medicines optimally in their own homes. It also includes criteria for implementation of the principles and examples of good practice. The principles also largely apply to support for those with long term conditions.
