Services Database COPD MUR+
This ‘COPD Pharmacist Consultation Toolkit’ is designed to help improve the confidence of the community pharmacist to provide high quality consultations for patients using medicines for COPD: COPD patient pharmacist consultations can help to:
- establish the patient’s actual use, understanding and experience of taking medicines;
- identify, discuss and assist in the resolution of poor or ineffective use of medicines by the patient;
- identify side effects and drug interactions that may affect the patient’s compliance with instructions given to them by a health care professional for the taking of medicines; and
- improve clinical and cost effectiveness of medicines prescribed to patients.
