Nursing Home Care - Resource

The Psychopharmacology (“PsychPharm”) Meeting is an opportunity for the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) to review psychotropic medication usage in the nursing home to ensure that:

  • Medications are being prescribed for appropriate indications.
  • Dose reductions are attempted at the required interval, unless contraindicated.
  • Documentation justifies the continued use of medication.
  • Non-pharmacological, person-centered approaches to treat symptoms have been attempted, documented and care planned.
