Answer

To assess the appropriateness of treatment with antipsychotic medication, [33, 34, 41] the Psychoactive Medication Quality Assurance Rating Survey (PQRS) (see the first image below) can be used at initial assessment and then repeated annually, [42] and the PQRS Screening Criteria (see the second image below) can be repeated monthly [43] .
