Antipsychotic Tracking Tool

Access on dta.com.au

The Antipsychotic Tracking Tool (APTT) has been developed for use in aged care settings to monitor antipsychotic usage. The APTT can be used to generate regular audit reports and graphs and to determine the prevalence of use of antipsychotic medications. State-based benchmark percentages from a national study (the RedUSe study) are included within the APTT graphs which may be a useful comparator when interpreting results. Facilities can follow changes in the use of antipsychotic usage over time for all residents within an aged care setting, regardless of whether the person is living with dementia or not.
