The launch of the Electronic Pharmacy Advice Form

Chemistree has launched its new electronic pharmacy advice form, an updated version of the paper pharmacy advice form (PAF). Like the pharmacy advice form, the new electronic version is intended for pharmacists to highlight areas for clinical consideration for prescribers aimed at providing the best possible clinical outcomes for residents in care homes in addition to reducing poly-pharmacy.

The pharmacy advice is provided for the GPs consideration, but also for the carer’s consideration where action is necessary. For example, where a patient’s medication records suggests recurrent urinary tract infections from several courses of antibiotics, a recommendation may be given to the carer to give cranberry juice to reduce the risk of recurrence. Historically, PAFs have been sent to prescribers via the carers but there remains uncertainty as to what proportion actually reaches the GPs. The new updated e-PAF will eradicate this problem, allowing the form to be sent directly to GPs via secure email so they are guaranteed to receive the pharmacist advice and can act accordingly.
