Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in Wales and the Cardiff School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences have developed a flowchart to inform decision making in care homes related to covert administration. The flowchart supports care home staff to differentiate between difficult to swallow and covert administration, and provides guidance for subsequent steps such as informing the multidisciplinary team and assessing residents for capacity.
