The 2010 Sir Brian Jarman Prize for the best Academic F2 project was won by Dr Shonella Singh for her project Interventions to optimise prescribing in care homes: a systematic review. This is an important topic because of the increasing number of older people who live in care homes. It is important that prescribing for this group of people is done to a high-standard to ensure that patients receive the drugs they need to improve their health and to reduce the risk of suffering adverse drug reactions.
