RACGP submission regarding on-site aged care pharmacists measure


Last updated 16 September 2022

Summary

Date: 16 September 2022

The RACGP is supportive of appropriately resourced, fit-for-purpose measures to improve medication management in residential aged care. However, it is the position of the RACGP that the on-site aged care pharmacists measure should only be implemented with thorough consideration and tailoring to fit in with the current system and account for the system-level issues that are preventing older people from accessing person-centred, continuous care in residential aged care facilities.
