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.
