Airing Pain 38: Can Your Pharmacy Help?
Finding out about the role of the pharmacist and how service users can get the most from them
Paul Evans speaks to Professor David Taylor from the University College London School of Pharmacy about the perceptions and reality of the pharmacist’s role and their skills. Pharmacist Emma Hinks talks about how pharmacists can help you with services like the Medicines Use Review (MUR), which looks at how you are getting on with your medicines. We also hear about the increasing emphasis on pharmacists communicating with their service users, working together with other services and recommending non-pharmaceutical forms of treatment.
Issues covered in this programme include: Patient experience, drugs, medication, pharmacy, prescription, education, policy, community healthcare, communicating pain and access to services.
