Abstract

What is already known about this subject? There is conflicting evidence concerning the potential benefits of pharmacist-led medication review. Little work has been published on the completeness of medication reviews provided by community pharmacists. What this study adds  The 60 community pharmacists taking part in a large randomized controlled trial showed considerable variation in the completeness of the reviews they recorded for intervention  Overall, pharmacists recorded only a minority of the potential issues present in these patients.  The frequency with which pharmacists recorded issues was not related to key characteristics or to the number of reviews completed.
