Making care safer

This report collects together the testimony given by family and carers of people living in a care home, specifically around issues of medication safety.

Three day-long focus groups were held in 2010, in Manchester, Birmingham and London. The issues and potential solutions raised by the groups are presented in this report under four main headings: communication and information sharing; prescribing and administration of medication; staff development and support; and advocacy and rights.
