New content on Meds IQ launching this autumn - medicines administration!

Meds IQ website will be changing to accommodate a new content section this autumn - focused on improving the safety of administering medications.

 

Following the feedback from our users, we have decided to launch this new section, in recognition of the fact that many medication errors occur at this stage of the medication cycle (see our About Us page for more detail on our areas of focus and the rationale behind it).
