Jamie, K. and Oliver, E.J. and Paterson, A. and Whittlesea, C. (2019) 'Discussing alcohol in medicines use reviews : experiences of patients in a community pharmacy context.', International journal of pharmacy practice., 27 (3). pp. 318-321.
Objectives: Although pharmacist‐led medicines use reviews (MURs) are effective for medicines management, little is understood about patients’ experiences of alcohol‐related advice delivered therein. Sampling a population at high risk for misuse (within an area of socio‐economic deprivation), we explored patient experiences of alcohol‐related MURs. Methods: Two focus groups were conducted with patients who had discussed alcohol in an MUR in the preceding 3 months (n = 9). Data were analysed thematically. Key findings and conclusion: Patients were open to discussing alcohol in the MUR context. The absence of practitioner‐patient power asymmetry and pharmacists’ sensitivity to cultural contexts were critical to patient engagement.
