My Medicines Sheets
The My Medicines sheet was developed for AAMW 2007 as a fun and easy to use downloadable sheet for parents and health professional to fill in with children to help them understand more about the medicine they have been prescribed. The sheets can be used to focus on the particular medicines someone may be taking as as a way to remind both children and parents of the sort of questions they can ask about medicines.
At the request of the Department of Health, this year we have had the original My Medicines sheet translated into ten langauges - the ten languages most commonly spoken by unaccompanied assylum seeking children.  Click here for further information.

Does the Medicine Go Down?
This new resource was initiated by the Trent Workforce Development Confederation.
It is a resource which we believe has captured the spirit of working together with service users and health professionals to create a learning resource that;
  • is accessible to staff, learners and the public
  • brings together the perspectives of both staff and service users
  • highlights the need for partnership – of both staff and service users having responsibilities and equipping people to better engage and be better engaged

The DVD could be used as a stand alone programme for health professionals or could form part of a more in-depth training session on concordance which will not only help patient and health professional communication but could improve health outcomes.  For more information and to see the DVD here.
