Tool launched for prescribing

19th February 2013

A new tool has been launched by researchers in order to decrease the danger of making common mistakes when prescribing drugs.

Tony Avery, Nottingham University‚Äôs professor of primary healthcare, said: "The PINCER Query Library makes it easy to avoid some of the common medication errors and this is a topic that will attract increasing national audit interest over the next couple of years. By subscribing to this tool, GP practices will demonstrate their commitment to the safety of patients, as well as helping GPs themselves in their audit requirements for revalidation."
