This is a call to work together in a way that that will unite us in our common cause to improve the quality of life of people with dementia and their carers by reducing the inappropriate use of antipsychotics for these people.
The goal is to ensure that all people with dementia who are receiving antipsychotic drugs will have undergone a clinical review to ensure that their care is compliant with current best practice and guidelines, that alternatives to their prescription have been considered and a shared decision has been agreed regarding their future care by 31st March 2012.
- The Right Prescription: a call to action on the use of antipsychotic drugs for people with dementia
- Commitment for commissioners in heath, social care and GP commissioning
Building on the call to action, this outlines specific commitments for commissioners in heath, social care and GP commissioning.
