Abstract: A poster presentation regarding patient benefit of a medicines use review service. Introduction: Medicines Use Reviews (MURs) have been implemented in a number of countries with the aim to improve patients’ overall medication knowledge, identify drug related problems and promote quality use of medicines. Such a system entails a private consultation between pharmacist and patient. Aims: • To propose a Medicines Use Review framework within local community pharmacies. • To identify and manage drug related problems for patients receiving medication for chronic conditions. • To assess the impact of the interventions through a follow-up.
