Asthma results in one death every six hours. Ninety per cent of these deaths can be avoided with good management of this condition. Community pharmacists are in an ideal position to make a difference by identifying individuals for an asthma MUR.

The MIMS Prescribing Notes Fact Pack on Asthma Medicines Use Review has been produced in association with Haymarket Medical Publications Limited, the publishers of MIMS .

The four cards within the pack cover:
  • A guide to a medicines use review with a patient with asthma
  • Asthma medications
  • Inhaler techniques
  • Asthma control

The pack is supported with a patient consultation pad and a sample of a supporting leaflet entitled ‘Asthma advice for your pharmacist.’

Electronic copies of the pack and leaflet will be made available on the PSNC website.
