Webinar – Psychotropic Medicines in Cognitive Disability or Impairment Clinical Care Standard

Thursday 9 May @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hosted by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.

Psychotropic medications are frequently prescribed to people who live with cognitive disability or impairment – and are often used to manage behaviours of concern, despite the lack of evidence that they are effective for this purpose.

The standard has been developed by clinicians and researchers working in both the aged care and disability sectors to improve the quality of health care for people with cognitive disability or impairment, whenever these medicines are being considered or used.

Join our webcast to hear experts discuss informed consent, adequate assessment, best use of non-medication strategies and how to optimise safety when psychotropic medicines are considered necessary.
