Yes. For patients who do not have capacity to consent, we ask that a personal consultee is contacted (e.g., friend or family member) or for nursing home residents only, a nursing home staff member can be contacted if a personal consultee has not been identified. The consultee will be asked to:
- provide assent on behalf of their friend/relative or resident.
- agree to their friend’s/relative’s or resident’s health care data being used for the trial, and
- complete questionnaires about their friend’s/relative’s or resident’s health and, if appropriate, their experience of having a medication review and medicines stopped.
