Getting the most value from medicines

  • Lorraine Osman

Abstract

Medicines may make the difference between life and death. That sounds very dramatic, but it is true. They may also make a significant difference in a patient’s quality of life. 

There are many factors that influence whether or not a patient gets the best outcome from medicine. Even if the development and production of the medicine were perfect, the storage conditions were ideal, the diagnosis was accurate, the most appropriate medicine was prescribed and acquired by the patient, the therapy will fail if the medicine is not used appropriately.
