The National Prescribing Centre has launched a new "National Campaigns" section online. The purpose of this new area is to focus on significant areas of prescribing and medicines management in relation to cost-effectiveness and safety. Each campaign topic will:
- cover policy and guidance
- interpret the evidence base
- provide implementation materials
- provide monitoring tools for use at a local level
The first of these campaigns is Statins. This campaign contains summaries of key national policy documents. Presentations, commentaries, case studies and quizzes cover the evidence base for statins in ways to suit many different learning styles. Implementation tools include guides, templates and example letters. The monitoring tools include a switch tracker and impact assessment tool.
Action: This first National Campaign focussed on statins will be useful to all clinicians involved in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
