Bottom up approach of local pharmacotherapeutic consultations involving pharmacists and general practitioners
Pharmaceutisch Weekblad 1999 Oct 15; 134:1400-1404


The characteristics and the history of pharmacotherapeutic consultations in the Dutch town of Asten are presented on the basis of interviews with 8 general practitioners and 2 pharmacists. The success of the consultations was evidenced from the low number of prescriptions per patient and the low costs per prescriptions. It was noted that this success was based on the character of the consultations that aim at combining local knowledge and expertise, independent from the pharmaceutical industry. This model may be useful for broader application.
