Medicines Use Reviews (MUR)
A Medicines Use Review aims to improve understanding and adherence to medicines by identifying and addressing factors linked to non-adherence behaviours.
Patients with complex difficulties in understanding and adhering to medications (and their family/whanau) receive personalised education and support to improve self-management. This is achieved through tailored education for greater understanding of what their prescribed medications are through an agreed action plan to address adherence issues.
College Education and Training provide a training course for pharmacists to become accredited to provide the MUR service.
The training course consists of the following topics
- The context of MURs
- Privacy & Consent
- Communication Skills
- Undertaking a patient MUR consultation
We are currently reviewing this Programme and aim to have an MUR Online Programme launched in early/mid 2017.
