Evaluation of medication reviews conducted by community pharmacists: a quantitative analysis of documented issues and recommendations

By Michela Tinelli, J. Krska and A. J. Avery

Abstract

What is already known about this subject? There is conflicting evidence concerning the potential benefits of pharmacist-led medication review. Little work has been published on the completeness of medication reviews provided by community pharmacists. What this study adds  The 60 community pharmacists taking part in a large randomized controlled trial showed considerable variation in the completeness of the reviews they recorded for intervention  Overall, pharmacists recorded only a minority of the potential issues present in these patients.  The frequency with which pharmacists recorded issues was not related to key characteristics or to the number of reviews completed
