We all have difficulty remembering to take our tablets, especially if we are required to take a variety of drug treatments. Around 20-30% of elderly patients take three or more medicines daily and to ensure optimum treatment-outcomes good compliance is important. Non-compliance is a major health issue, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality and is a financial burden to the health service.
If you or someone you know require help with your medicines, have a chat with our pharmacist who can arrange for your medicines to be prepared in a suitable compliance aid - helping you ensure you never forget to take your tablets. Monitored Dosage is also known as blister packing as the tablets are placed in blisters.
Here is a short video that shows how we prepare a Venalink monitored dosage system.
