CQC shares leaning on medicines optimisation

The Care Quality Commission has published a report sharing the learning from risks and good practice in medicines optimisation.

The CQC notes that many of the services it regulates have a role in managing medicines, and that medicines can present a clear risk to people when not used properly. As part of its inspections it looks at how people's medicines are optimised.

Medicines in health and adult social care: Learning from risks and sharing good practice for better outcomes reviews the lessons of over 200 inspection reports of NHS and independent providers where there were medicines-related issues, 100 enforcement notices and 1,500 National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) and statutory notifications from providers between 2015 and 2018.
