This pack has been developed by pharmacists who work on a day to day basis with care staff. The topic areas chosen are those where the team regularly find problems.
It is important that care staff understand the way that Parkinson’s can affect people and how their care needs can change. Medication has an important role in keeping people well and care staff need to ensure that they are always given at a time that suits the person even when this is outside of normal medicine rounds. The pack also seeks to encourage staff to use the Patient Information Leaflet supplied with medicines as an information source.
