Our CAPS medication paper was accepted in JPCH!

Published on Thursday, 27 April 2017

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.
