Study information

Scientific title

Evaluating a new model of care to enable patients to manage their medicines

Acronym

Study hypothesis

Nonadherence (noncompliance) with prescribed medicines is common, usually preventable, and causes significant morbidity, hospitalisation and wasted resources. This study is evaluating a novel community pharmacy based service, designed to improve patients' satisfaction with their medicines, reduce nonadherence and hence improve their health outcomes. In this service patients receiving newly prescribed medicines from their pharmacy will have a follow-up phone call from the pharmacist to resolve any problems with their medicines and meet any information needs. This randomised controlled trial will determine whether the service reduces nonadherence and increases satisfaction with information about medicines. An economic evaluation will also be conducted.
