Lithium Information Packs

Saint John of God Hospital has developed a national lithium patient information pack to support improving patient safety in the use of lithium therapy. The packs contain a patient information booklet on lithium, a lithium record book and a lithium alert card and are endorsed by Patient Safety First, the Irish Medication Safety Network and the College of Psychiatrists of Ireland. Packs can be ordered directly from KPW printers on (090) 9642297.

The Irish Medication Safety Network in collaboration with Saint John of God Hospital Pharmacy also has a document available on best practice guidelines for prescribing and monitoring lithium therapy.
