The Review of Professional Pharmacy Programs and Services - Meditrax
by Meditrax Administration - Wednesday, 14 September 2016, 2:17 PM
 
Sign this petition and join us to raise the bar by improving RMMRs and QUM services to Aged Care Facilities

 

An independent review is underway of Pharmacy remuneration and regulation in Australia. This will enable the panel to make recommendations on future remuneration to pharmacists for professional programs and services.

Residential Medication Management Reviews (RMMR) and Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) services to aged care facilities are an important part of the pharmacy programs to be reviewed. Meditrax seeks the support of aged care organisations, facility managers, GPs, RNs and care workers in maintaining and increasing these valuable services.

We ask for your support in signing the petition below to strengthen our case for the continuation and expansion of consultant pharmacist services in aged care facilities.

by Meditrax Administration - Friday, 7 November 2014, 1:32 PM
 

Are you looking for a policy regarding Cytotoxics?

Look no further with this 2nd edition of the Cytotoxic Risk Management Manual available in the online store

The newly updated Cytotoxic and Other Hazardous Drugs in Aged Care Homes manual provides comprehensive information on the different types that are available, consideration regarding the safe handling and labelling of any such products as well as guidelines for waste management of hazardous medications.  

It is important that resident’s hazardous medications (including cytotoxic medications) are managed safely, not only to minimise the risks to the resident themselves, but also to the nursing staff providing care as well as any staff who may be in contact with any waste products including laundry and cleaning staff.
