The DMR service builds on the Medicines Use Review (MUR) service and offers the opportunity to ensure that patients discharged from secondary to primary care, receive support and information relating to their medication.
It is also the opportunity to check that the medicines prescribed in one care setting match those prescribed by the GP. The aim is to reduce wastage, support patients and reduce re-admissions to hospital.
The DMR service involves two interventions; the first intervention will involve checking whether the medicines prescribed in the discharge setting match those prescribed by the GP.
The second intervention will involve a discussion around the patient's use of medicines and will give chance to ensure that any discrepancies have been rectified.What do I need to get started?
