Medicines Use Reviews (MUR)

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
  • Culture
  • Communication Skills
  • Process
  • Documentation
  • Scenarios
  • Assessments
  • Undertaking a patient MUR consultation

We are currently reviewing this Programme and aim to have an MUR Online Programme launched in early/mid 2017.
