Pharmacy Audits – Clinical Interventions
The visiting pharmacist records any issues, error or queries regarding the prescription charts on the Pharmacy Audit: Medicines Management forms.
An example of a pharmacist clinical intervention would be a notification that there may be a potential adverse drug interaction.
Therefore, clinical interventions must not be viewed as being an error as they are provided by the pharmacist for information to the MDT.
Other examples of clinical interventions include reporting doses higher than BNF; advising a review of the length of treatment (especially for antibiotics); reviewing patients who continually refuse treatment; or reviewing PRN medication that is being administered on a regular basis.
