Co-designing solutions for medication safety with families

Following our December event, where we discussed key challenges families face in medication safety in home and hospital care environments and possible solutions, some of the event participants have now formed a group looking at how to develop the solution ideas further, with support from RCPCH.

 

To this end, we are gathering information about existing medication or healthcare passports in use (one of the suggestions for a new resource) as well as any other resources currently employed by healthcare professionals to support families in managing medications.

 

If you would like to support our work, please complete this survey which will take you no more than 5min.

 

The results will inform our discussions at the next meeting in June, where we will be forming a more concrete plan of what a comprehensive support resource needs to include, to then consult on it and develop further with young people and families.
