AMA submission to the baseline report on Quality Use of Medicines and medicines safety – phase one

13 Oct 2020

The AMA believes that resolving QuM and medicines safety issues in aged care goes beyond solely implementing specific programs. There are several systemic issues that must be resolved before QuM and medication safety can be achieved, particularly in residential aged care facilities. QuM and medicine safety can be improved by improving the capability, capacity, and connectedness of the health and aged care workforce.
