Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

The MUR service which came into effect in April 2005 as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework involves pharmacists conducting a face-to-face “concordance- centred reviews” with patients. The average number of MURs provided by each community pharmacy has increased annually from 89 in 2006–07 to 161 in 2008–09 However, anecdotal feedback from primary care organisations (PCOs) suggests that the quality of MURs varies considerably. Despite this, there are few studies determining the nature and quality of MURs being undertaken in practice. The aim of this study was to analyse MURs in terms of the demographics and disease areas of the patients as well as the quality of the interventions made. The study was approved by the School of Pharmacy Ethics committee and was supported by the Brighton and Hove PCT.[1].
