MeReC Bulletin – Implementing key therapeutic topics: 1

The National Prescribing Centre has published a MeReC Bulletin (PDF), the first in a series of three, that focuses on the therapeutic areas of the QIPP agenda.

The topics covered in this bulletin are:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Antibiotic prescribing - especially quinolones and cephalosporins
  • High dose inhaled corticosteroids in asthma

For each of the therapeutic topic areas the evidence base is summarised and current prescribing data are reviewed.
