    Can anyone help me? I am stuck in trying to think of the legal and ethical requirements in doing these things. I have never seen one in practice before. Legally, stuff like patient consent and confidentiality are paramount along with the pharmacist having to be qualified to do them. Ethically I have not much of a clue!!!!!!
    I guess that it is a good thing to have these records in order to maintain optimal patient care and providing their GP of any referrals or issues that may have arisen from these?!

    What is this for? if you don't mind me asking.

    A lot of the ethical points surrounding MURs stem from money.

      I need to cover some ethical reasons for pharmacists preparing MURs. I am now thinking that it may include being respectful and showing dignity towards the patient. I am probably barking up the wrong tree but I take your point about the money!

        Sometimes its the obvious things - such as the facilities, safeguarding, patient confidentiality, chaperone etc that are important to the activity that is required to answer these questions.

            In these times of reduced staff hours and targets - this should not be forgotten.
            If you are unable to conduct a potential MUR due to this make sure it is noted somewhere for 'the management' to audit.
