About   >  COMPASS Notes

COMPASS provides GPs with feedback on their prescribing (COMPASS Prescribing Report). This is supplemented with evidence-based advice on the use of medicines that is provided to GPs and Pharmacists (COMPASS Therapeutic Notes).

COMPASS Therapeutic Notes can now play a part in the continuing professional development of General Practitioners and Pharmacists in Northern Ireland. Each COMPASS Therapeutic Notes bulletin that has been issued from January 2003 provided 2 hours of professional development time.

COMPASS Therapeutic Notes provide unbiased information regarding the appropriate use of medicines and they are written following an extensive review of the literature.

When a subject area has been updated in COMPASS the previous version and its MCQs will be removed from this website.
