Abstract

Several studies have evaluated domiciliary medicines support services in terms of adherence, wastage and healthcare utilisation, yet few have considered patients’ risk of harm from their medicines. Such risk often manifests through non‐adherence or an inability to safely administer medicines; factors known to cause morbidity and mortality. The NPSA risk matrix (1) is widely used in practice to assess risks of harm in a variety of contexts; the risk score calculated is a composite of the likelihood and consequence of harm. This study concerns the novel application of the NPSA risk matrix to the recipients of a domiciliary medicines support service. The aim of the study was to determine the effect of the domiciliary medicines support service on patients’ medication related risk of harm.
