|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding pharmacist intervention in a psychiatric setting. Introduction: Psychiatric patients are amongst the most challenging to manage. In Malta, at Mount Carmel Hospital (MCH), patients are sent home on an ‘on leave’ practice when their health condition would have improved. The term ‘on leave’ is given to those individuals who are sent home for a few days or weeks until their next appointment visit at MCH. Aims: • to assess medication adherence in a group of ‘on leave’ psychiatric patients at MCH. • to introduce and evaluate a pharmacist intervention which included the explanation and distribution of medication charts in the same group of psychiatric patients and another group consisting of family members in charge of their ill psychiatric relatives.|
