Well done to you Leeanne and the team on a brilliant project. Your project highlights there is so much that can be done to reduce the impacts of medications on the environment while improving patient care and is applicable not only in critical care but a wide range of settings. I understand the project has led to new ideas in your wider service as well, which I am looking forward to hearing more about!
Best wishes,
