In order to provide the best care for your care recipients, you may need to assess the level of support needed for their medication provision. You can do this, easily and digitally on Birdie using our medication risk assessment.
We've built the medication assessment in line with both CQC and NICE guidelines. This means the medication assessment will allow you to make informed decisions and support the autonomy and independence of care recipients, allowing you to record concerns and build a personalised approach when managing their medication and reduce any potential medication errors.
