Our CAPS medication paper was accepted in JPCH!
Thank you to all our members who completed the Children Attending Paediatricians Study (CAPS) 2008 and 2013. These clinical practice audits provided a two week snapshot of paeditricians consultations. In terms of prescribing medications, the most frequently prescribed drug class was psychotropics. These were prescribed in around half the developmental/behavioural consultations in both audits.
