Abstract: A poster presentation on assessing patient compliance towards monitoring needs and prescribed treatment.

Prescribing and administration of these drugs requires precise monitoring to maximize effectiveness and ensure patient safety. Monitoring of patients on DMARDs is an essential part of pharmaceutical care. The pharmacist must work within a multidisciplinary team to ensure further the patients’ safety between the primary and secondary care settings. Aim: • To assess patient compliance towards monitoring needs of rheumatology patients who are on methotrexate. • To assess rheumatology patients compliance to prescribed treatment for methotrexate.
