The Medicines Optimisation Quality Framework
The MOQF has the following components:
- A Regional Medicines Optimisation Model which outlines what should be done at each stage of the patient journey to help gain the best outcomes from medicines.
- Quality Standards which describe what patients can expect when medicines are included as part of their treatment. These standards address the priority issues for medicines optimisation in Northern Ireland within the three overarching quality domains of safety, effectiveness and patient/client focus.
- An Integrated and Innovation Change Programme applying a strategic approach to support and drive continuous improvement through the development and implementation of best practice in medicines optimisation.
This short animated video about Medicines Optimisation describes how the Medicines Optimisation Quality Framework and the Medicines Optimisation Innovation Centre (MOIC) are supporting quality improvement in medicines use for patients and sharing best practices from Northern Ireland across Europe.
