Patients' experiences using a brief screening tool for medication-related problems in a community pharmacy setting.
The researchers explored patient perceptions and the practical implication of using a brief 9-item scale to screen for medication-related problems in community pharmacies. After interviewing 40 patients who completed the scale and reviewed its results with their pharmacist, they concluded that it may have value in increasing patients' understanding of and confidence in their medications, enhancing pharmacist-patient relationships, and identifying problems requiring additional interventions.
