New resource to track antipsychotic use

A free tool to help residential aged care providers monitor and reduce the use of antipsychotic medications in facilities.

Dementia Training Australia has launched a free tool to help residential aged care providers monitor and reduce the use of antipsychotic medications in facilities.

The Antipsychotic Tracking Tool (APTT) generates audit reports and graphs to show how prevalent antipsychotic medication use in a facility.

The tool, which can be used by any aged care health professional with experience in antipsychotic medications, allows providers to monitor changes in their use of antipsychotic medication for residents over time.
