We increasingly rely on medicines to sustain good health, but using medicines to best effect is a major challenge. Involving patients and carers as partners in prescribing decisions and supporting them in medicine taking is key to improving patient safety, health outcomes and satisfaction with care.
 
Room for Review: A guide to medication review is a publication aimed at health professionals. It describes the importance of medication review as a component of good patient care and points the way to greater involvement of patients in decisions about their medicines.
 
Focus on Your Medicines a Patient Guide to Medication Review is a short booklet targeted at patients who have been invited for or would benefit from a medication review. This guide provides important information which patients need to know about Medication Review, as well as helping them to prepare for a review.   An expanded version of the booklet specially developed for people with Epilepsy has also been developed and is available to order.
 
Understand your medicines - a Patient Guide to Medicines Use Review is a short booklet that explains the new Medicines Use Review service and helps patients prepare to get the most out of their review.
