DAA rules changing

New guidelines for dose administration aids come into effect in December

The new guidelines state that, if utilising third party packed DAAs, the supplying pharmacist ‘must make an assessment of the measures, techniques and technology used by the packing pharmacist at the third party packing facility to check packed DAAs for accuracy, to determine whether additional checking of a DAA is required prior to its supply to a patient or their agent’.

Board chair Bill Kelly said obvious changes included renaming the titles of guidelines
