Abstract:
Medicines management involves the safe and cost-effective use of medicines across the health economy in order to produce informed and desired outcomes of patient care. Anecdotal evidence suggested that various aspects of medicines management in the British Anny, both in peacetime and on operational deployments, were not as robust as in mainstream NHS care. This study aimed to explore British Army doctors' views on medicines management (prescribing and dispensing) on matters such as ethical a professional concerns with the role of dispensing doctor and cost-effective prescribing.
