Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (EPMA)

EPMA – Training Guides

CMM is our Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (EPMA) system, introduced by the Trust and currently in the process of implementation across the organisation in 2024. The system has already been deployed at various mental health wards, with plans to extend its implementation to both mental health and physical health sites over the course of the year.

Quick Reference Guides

Quick Reference Guides (QRGs) are provided to offer quick instructions and assistance on using the system. These guides cover areas such as general use, prescribing, nursing, and pharmacy processes, aiming to ensure the EPMA system is utilised efficiently and effective.
