Today one of my consultancy clients, MacIntyre, have published a guide on poly pharmacy that they co-produced with me. You can read the guide here: https://www.macintyrecharity.org/news-blogs/poly-pharmacy-a-guide-for-staff/
This resource, which is aimed at social care staff but offers useful information for everyone, supports the national STOMP campaign: Stop the Over Medication of People with a Learning Disability, Autism or both. The guide aims to raise awareness of poly pharmacy (a phrase used when a person is taking 4 or more medications) and offers advice to help reduce instances of poly pharmacy.
