Resource description

The Community Pharmacy Medicines Management Project (CPMMP) was a multi-centre randomised, controlled trial evaluating the contribution of community pharmacists to improving health outcomes for patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). The service consisted of a pharmacist-initiated review of patients’ medication regimens drawing on clinical information transcribed from the patient’s medical notes, coupled with a face-to-face consultation with the patient over a twelve month intervention period. Pharmacists were expected to make recommendations to the general practitioner (GP) and patient regarding the appropriateness of medication regimens and provide relevant lifestyle advice, following-up the patient’s progress if deemed necessary. This paper presents findings about community pharmacists’ perceptions and experiences of taking part in the CPMMP.
