MMI Scenario 5
You are working as medicines optimisation pharmacist within a residential care home. A resident, John, aged 89, is having difficulty in taking his morning medicine. When you enquire further it is his omeprazole 20mg capsules, which he takes in the morning 30 minutes before breakfast. The nursing team are asking if you change this to omeprazole liquid as it is easier for John to swallow with his morning cup of tea. What issues do you need to consider in this scenario?
