Services Database Paediatric Asthma Medicines Use Review Plus Service (Isle of Wight Area)
The aim of the service was to optimise the outcomes of treatment of asthma in paediatric patients through the effective delivery of Medicines Use Reviews involving the patient’s carer and demonstrating the benefits through audit and evaluation.
The initiative was delivered through 10 community pharmacies on the IOW with engagement criteria being based on location, MUR accreditation status and recent history of successful delivery of MURs.
The target for asthma patient consultations over the period was a minimum of 20 per participating pharmacy. It was desirable to target a balance of age groups, i.e. 10 patients between 0-5 years and 10 between 5-12 years.
The project ran for nine months before an evaluation was completed.
