Convener: Fiona Woods, Director, Welsh Medicines Information Centre
The UKMi Quality and Risk Management Group advises the parent group, UKMi Executive, on matters relating to the quality of MI services in the UK.
The Group develop quality assurance programmes for MI services, in line with relevant NHS policy, and produce associated documentation and guidance. It is also responsible for monitoring the implementation of such programmes and guidance. Its remit includes development of national Audit standards, the Incident Reporting in Medicines Information Scheme (IRMIS), guidance to support enquiry answering (including the Essential Resource List), and resources to support service development.
The Quality and Risk Management Group meets 4 times per year. A Highlights document is produced from the Minutes after each meeting. This document emphasizes items discussed within meetings which are of importance or may lead to change. The Highlights documents are circulated around the UKMi Network and should be discussed within local teams. Full minutes of each meeting, and previous Highlights documents, are available on request.
The group can be contacted via QRMG.firstname.lastname@example.org.
