GP access to new prescribing indicators for adults with a learning disability and/or autism

GP practices have an opportunity to gain useful feedback for improving patient care - such as a report, due later this year, about the impact of prescribing certain medications to adults with a learning disability - by joining Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD).

More than 1,100 practices already take part, contributing data which can be used to prove the safety of drugs/vaccines. They can earn extra money by completing questionnaires and taking part in clinical trials.  A key benefit is receiving quality improvement reports, which help GPs to review patient care.
