Abstract

Medication reviews (MRs) aim at optimising medicines use and improving health outcomes. Despite encouraging literature reports, their implementation differs between countries. Ultimately, the only interventions that will succeed are those that are accepted by all involved stakeholders. Identifying stakeholders' experiences with and attitudes towards MRs can inform further implementation of MRs in community pharmacies. The aim of this study was to critically appraise, synthesize and present the evidence on patients' and doctors' experiences with and attitudes towards MRs in community pharmacies, using the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research (CFIR). This literature review is part of a larger systematic review of four databases (MEDLINE, Scopus, CINAHL, IPA), which was conducted with key search terms related to: implementation, pharmacy, medication reviews, facilitators and barriers. The search included primary research items published in English, Spanish or German and dating from 2004 onward. Mappy against the CFIR was carried out by two independent researchers and the synthesis of the findings was presented according to the CFIR constructs. The study found that CFIR provided a clear structure for experiences, barriers and facilitators to MR-implementation. Despite general appreciation of MRs and the perceived patient benefit, issues persist with encouraging the positive engagement of both patients and doctors. Further research is needed to explore the reasons for this and to develop strategies for overcoming these barriers.
