Review your STOMP plan
2018 STOMP NEWS (2st Ed)
If your STOMP plan has been in place for four months or more, then it’s time for a review. Please complete the review columns in your planning document and send to stomp@vodg.org.uk
Case Studies
2018 STOMP NEWS (2st Ed)
An important part of the STOMP healthcare campaign is the sharing of good practice and case studies. We are  collating case studies to be made more widely available, including on social media (#STOMP). These stories are an excellent way of sharing learning and good practice. Please send to: stomp@vodg.org.uk
This needs a title Jill and...
This case study illustrates how the positive involvement of a family member can be key to tackling over-medication. Top tips are also identified in this example. 
And here....
Removing unnecessary medication in a controlled way significantly increased this person’s quality of life. A better understanding of what he is communicating through his behaviour continues to be the key to this success. 
STOMP films
2018 STOMP NEWS (2st Ed)
Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has developed a series of short films about STOMP. While aimed primarily at healthcare workers these also provide a suitable introduction for people working in social care.
Resources
2018 STOMP NEWS (2st Ed)

‘Preparing to visit a doctor’ provides a structure for frontline staff to support a person with a learning disability, autism or both who is preparing for a medical appointment to review psychotropic medication.
This audit tool is for providers who are looking to gain an overview of the use of psychotropic medication in their organisation.
NHS England resources including advice for people with a learning disability and their families, are available here.
At the recent STOMP for social care conference, some providers expressed a willingness to share resources they have developed to support the implementation of STOMP. If you would like to share tools, policies, policies, training material or any other resources, please email them to stomp@vodg.org.uk and we circulate.
