Community Compliance Aids

 

Patients sometimes need assistance to ensure they take the right drug at the right time as prescribed by their doctor.  Health visitors, district nurses, GPs and family members are as aware as pharmacists of the problems many patients have when confronted with a complicated drug regimen.  Lack of compliance may lead to multiple consultations with healthcare professionals and even hospital admission or residential care.

 

The Links Pharmacy monitored dosage system (MDS) has been designed to support many patients living in the community taking a variety of medication.  The system ensures that compliance to taking the medication is maintained at a high level.  It also allows family members or healthcare professionals who visit their relatives or patients to check if there are issues with compliance very quickly at a glance.
