Resource Kit to enable implementation of the APAC Guidelines on Medication Management in Residential Aged Care Facilities

The Australian Pharmaceutical Advisory Council (APAC) has published `Guidelines for medication management in residential aged care facilities’ that assist residential aged care services to develop systems that support the quality use and administration of medicines.

Section A of the resource kit contains general information about the 14 APAC recommendations. Section B contains information relevant to each specific APAC recommendation. The examples contained within section B are provided as drafts and samples for RACS to adapt and tailor to the needs of their own organisation, based on the outcomes of quality audits.
