- PublicationsN/A
- Brief summaryDrug related problems (DRP) such as contra-indications, interactions, adverse drug reactions (ADR), incorrect dosing, irrationality and inefficacy of treatment not only result from the specific effects of drugs in patients but also from causes like prescription errors and non-compliance with treatment. Risk factors for DRP include aging, co-morbidity, polypharmacy and hospitalisation. The main objective of this study is to examine the effect of medication review and counselling of discharged patients by the community pharmacists on the occurrence of Drug Related Problems (DRP). The effect of patient counselling by pharmacists on compliance, quality of life, re-hospitalisations possibly related to medicines and the cost-effectiveness of the intervention are secondary objectives.
