Rather, it provides recommendations for clinical practice surrounding the use of medication to manage behaviour problems among adults with a learning disability. All relevant medication and related issues are considered. The guide is divided into the following sections: initiation of treatment (assessment, formulation, and treatment plan); monitoring of treatment; discontinuation of treatment; high-dose medication; poly-prescribing; intramuscular (IM) medication; rapid tranquilisation; as required (PRN) prescribing; communication and information sharing; interdisciplinary working; consent and capacity; and the referral pathway.
