Abstract

This is the second of two articles outlining a retrospective view of a medication management project, its results and implications for current practice and development. 'Medicines with Respect' enabled nurses to work more effectively with clients and provided a foundation for the administration of medicines, as well as medication management strategies with clients. A key factor was the active involvement of the service users early on in their in-patient treatment, leading to improved collaboration through increasing staff awareness of medicines management and improved patient information on medications. Spin offs from the project involved changes in medication administration practice from a 'queue' system to individual administrations in a private forum to increase dialogue with patients.
