  • SHPA FACT SHEET -- Risk factors for medication-related problems
  • This fact sheet could assist individual pharmacists and organisations to identify patients at greatest risk of medication-related problems to target and maximise the effectiveness of a clinical pharmacy service.
  • SHPA POSITION STATEMENT - Pharmacists have established roles in interdisciplinary teams
  • The safe and effective use of medicines is underpinned by a patient-centred, collaborative and interdisciplinary team approach where the right service is delivered at the right time, in the right location, by the right practitioner, to the right patient. SHPA believes that pharmacists should be part of such teams in all care settings across the health system to optimise outcomes from medicines for patients.
  • SHPA concerned about lack of detail and patient focus in 6CPA
  • SHPA believes the 6CPA should be patient-focused and facilitate patients' access to services that improve medication use and patient care, including reducing admission to hospital. These services must be targeted at those most in need.
