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 programme for pharmacists to become accredited to provide the MUR service.
The training PRogramme consists of the following topics
- Adherence and Medicine Management Services
- Effective Communication
- Documenting the MUR Service
- Maintaining Ongoing Quality
- Assessments (online assessments and undertaking a patient MUR consultation)
