Abstract

This article reports the initial development and evaluation of stages 1 and 2 of the ‘stepped approach’ to ‘medicines management’ (MM) and concentrates on the collaboration between the University of Huddersfield and South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. A snapshot of results of a pilot audit of mental health nurses’ experience who have completed the assessment of competency is presented. We identify the impact of resource issues and overload of student assessment on the project development. We conclude by outlining the next steps in the project’s development and evaluation.
