Polypharmacy Guidance

This app is based on the second edition of the Scottish Government's national guidance on polypharmacy. This builds upon and refines the previous guidance from 2012. The ‘7-steps’, defined within this guidance, aim provide a clear structure for the medicines review process, centred on the needs of the individual as a whole, and encouraging the dialogue between clinician and patients to include non-pharmacological solutions as well as medication ones.This guidance aims to support those carrying out comprehensive face - to - face medication reviews with patients and where appropriate carers/welfare proxies. It also contains much information that patients will find useful.

The app has been developed jointly by Scottish Government, NHS Education for Scotland, two subgroups of the Polypharmacy Guidance Review Group - the Model of Care Group and the Data, Indicators and Evaluation Group and input from the Medicines Information pharmacist network.
