Managing Multiple Medicines

The Scottish Government Effective Prescribing and Therapeutics team provide this Managing Multiple Medicines (formerly Polypharmacy)  app and website. The aim is to provide information and tools to support healthcare professionals, patients and carers in making decisions about taking multiple medicines. It contains two toolkits:

  1. A toolkit for healthcare professionals 
  1. A toolkit for patients and carers taking multiple medicines 
  • This provides tools and information resources to support self-management and shared decision-making by patients and professionals during consultation  and medicines review. This toolkit will support patients to prepare in advance of meeting with their healthcare professional, and to follow up on key issues after the meeting. 

Both toolkits are freely available to all users.
