Medicines Use Reviews: Resource or Lost Opportunity?

´╗┐Medicines Use Reviews: Resource or Lost Opportunity?

Conclusions


Medicine management services are a key UK health policy strategy to ensure patients take medicines as prescribed. These services are increasingly being commissioned through community pharmacies to support patients with medicine adherence. Closer collaboration between GPs and pharmacists could potentially improve patients' use of medicines. The current lack of such collaboration constitutes a missed opportunity for pharmacists and GPs to work together with patients to improve effective prescribing, optimise patient use of medicines and to improve health outcomes.
