Ashtons’ Patient Medication Guide
The Patient Medication Guide is a medication administration record for patients to use when self-administering medicine.
It is designed to promote adherence to treatment as it helps patients to manage their medication more effectively. There is a space for patients to record the administration of medicines which will act as a reminder to take medicines at the correct time, and as a record to confirm administration.
It can be used by inpatients who are part of a self-medication programme and the pharmacy will label it if it is ordered with the patient’s medication.
It can also be used when patients are on leave. If patients are at home then a carer could use the Patient Medication Guide to record administration.
They can be obtained by using the Ashtons Order Form.
