Medicines Therapy Assessment

Medicines Therapy Assessment

The Medicines Therapy Assessment (MTA) is a systematic, patient-centred clinical assessment of all medicines currently taken by a patient, identifying, resolving and preventing medication-related problems as well as optimising the effectiveness of medication treatment.

To become accredited to provide MTA services, pharmacists must submit a portfolio documenting evidence against the Medicines Therapy Assessment Standards. The Standards for MTA were developed and set by a steering group of respected pharmacists, and are endorsed by the Pharmacy Council of New Zealand.
