Medication Review Drug-related problem classification Guidelines and Indicators

New version PCNE DRP-Classification

At a recent conference, the Working Group for Drug-Related Problems decided to make some small alterations in the classification. This leads to V 8.03 now being the newest. Some small adaptations have been implemented in C1.4 and in the domain description of P2. The newest version is now available on-line. The translated versions will be adapted as soon as possible, but are currently still the older V8.02.

Version 8.0 and 8.01 have been surpressed, although both versions are compatible.

In the mean time, V9.0 is being developed, which will include some causes for problems in medication related seamless care, e.g. the transfer of patients between clinicls, departments in clinics or hospitals en community..

A .sav file, for statistical assessments of V8.02 in SPSS is available from the PCNE secretariat.
