People with asthma benefit from medicine reviews delivered by pharmacists

People with asthma have been helped to gain more control of their condition by a scheme offered by community pharmacists in the South of England, a report being highlighted by Asthma UK and PSNC has shown. The Inhaler Technique Improvement Project enabled pharmacists to conduct structured reviews (called Medicines Use Reviews, or MURs) with people about their asthma and COPD medicines. During these reviews pharmacists tested how well peoples’ conditions were being managed and gave specialist asthma inhaler advice, using innovative training devices to help people to make sure they were using their inhalers correctly. Many people received two of these reviews, meaning their progress could be monitored. Pharmacists involved in the project have now provided more than 5,100 of the reviews across 206 pharmacies in the South of England, with more than 800 follow-up reviews also completed. The project built on the national pharmacy Medicines Use Review (MUR) service, which helps patients with long-term conditions to manage their medicines. As part of the reviews in the South of England, pharmacists carried out asthma control tests (ACT) or COPD assessment tests (CAT) and recorded the results in an electronic system. An analysis of the recorded data, covering 4,600 asthma control tests and 448 COPD assessment tests, has shown: In relative terms, 40 per cent of people with showed better asthma control during the time studied, while 55 per cent of COPD patients showed an improvement in symptom management. Analysis of data on emergency hospital admissions caused by asthma and COPD showed a positive association between the introduction of the pharmacy project and changes in emergency admission rates. There was evidence of improved COPD management following the pharma cy reviews– at the second review more patients achieved test scores indicating a less severe impact on their lives from COPD. There was evidence of improved asthma control between the first and second reviews – at the second review there was a 40 per cent relative increase in the number of patients achieving a test score representing good asthma control. The programme was popular, with the number of reviews being provided by pharmacies increasing.

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible
