This guide contains all the Medications List
design guidelines (mandatory and recommended)
accompanied by example diagrams to illustrate their application. Although offered
as a quick reference to already familiar guidance, you may also find this guide
useful for exploring areas of the guidance that are new to you.
Remember that this guide is not a replacement for the definitive version which
includes further usage examples (showing both correct and incorrect application)
and details the rationale behind the guidance.
Purpose of this Guidance
A list is one way of displaying medications information for a single patient.
That medications list would be only one of many potential views and tools for
managing medications in a clinical application.
The guidance focuses on a subset of the user interface needed for managing medications.
A full framework might include:
- More than one medication view with differing presentation styles
- Specialist views for specific contexts
Medications information integrated into views that are not just for
- Alternative presentation styles for a list of medications
This version of the Medications List guide is based on the full guidance document
