Project Description

Medication therapy management (MTM) is a distinct service or group of services provided by health care providers, including pharmacists, to ensure the best therapeutic outcomes for patients. MTM includes five core elements: medication therapy review, a personal medication record, a medication-related action plan, intervention or referral, and documentation and follow-up. MTM training is important to increase the competency of community pharmacists in Indonesia. Successful competencies align with organizational goals and individual performance evaluations and are used to prevent patient harm while improving clinical outcomes that lead to increase patients’ quality of life. Currently, the lack of standardized MTM for community pharmacists in Indonesia may become a problem to the quality service of the pharmacists. This research aims to design and develop standardized and effective MTM training modules for community pharmacists in Indonesia. The MTM training modules are expected to increase competence which includes the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of community pharmacists in Indonesia which in turn can improve the quality of life of the Indonesian people.
