Interprofessional Learning on Polypharmacy
Prescribing errors remain a continuing patient safety concern. Eradicating error in prescribing requires closer working between doctors and pharmacists. We report on interprofessional learning for medical and pharmacy students on complex polypharmacy in older people. This short course enables final‐year students to work with in‐patients to meticulously assess the completeness and accuracy of their prescriptions. The learning theory applied is experiential learning and reflection.
