Appliance Use Reviews (AURs)


Appliance Use Reviews (AURs) – you will be directed to the PSNC website

Appliance Use Review (AUR) is the second Advanced Service to be introduced into the English Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF). AURs can be carried out by a pharmacist or a specialist nurse in the pharmacy or at the patient’s home. AURs should improve the patient’s knowledge and use of any ‘specified appliance‘ by:

  • establishing the way the patient uses the appliance and the patient’s experience of such use;
  • identifying, discussing and assisting in the resolution of poor or ineffective use of the appliance by the patient;
  • advising the patient on the safe and appropriate storage of the appliance; and
  • advising the patient on the safe and proper disposal of the appliances that are used or unwanted.
