Description

These three cases convey a ‘thick description’ 32 of the nature and complexity of our study participants’ medicines practices. She tells me ‘I like to get them down my throat as quick as I can, because some of them have got some horrible taste to them…powdery, at the back of your throat, they lay there’. Box 1 presents a brief description based on one community pharmacy site (for a more detailed account of our observations in community pharmacy see Fudge and Swinglehurst 2021). There’s a couple of people in this block I noticed they have it [their medicines] delivered; they have this delivered, that delivered, when they’re capable and it would be good for them to go around there and get it, you know? The weekly trays have 28 compartments which are labeled Morning, Noon, Evening, and Night across the top, and each day of the week going down the side.

If the technician in the ‘dosette corner’ receives too many requests for changes of this kind to the contents of dosettes in quick succession, the job quickly becomes very stressful. We usually sit outside on his covered balcony when I visit; he smokes cigarettes and sips ‘real’ coffee (‘life’s little luxuries’) as he talks. They should be able to put a note in your file to make this an automatic process for your medication, but just in case, check your meds before you leave the pharmacy. She is unsure of some of their names but, like Marco, she recognises them by their material properties. I can do it myself, it gives me a little exercise…it can wait a little while before I need the service…I can do it myself now.It’s a small moment, but it perfectly captures both how inaccessible packaging can be when the strength and dexterity in your hands are affected by RA and the violence of the emotions that accompany such situations. Marco says he knows ‘roughly’ what his tablets are, although a video-recording of one of his clinical consultations with his GP casts some doubt on how well he knows them by either name or purpose.

Also, make sure repeat prescriptions are dispensed in time so the person you look after does not run out of medicine. Clamshell packaging omits the cardboard entirely, and is made with a single sheet of plastic divided into two halves by a hinge, allowing it to be closed shut. It is very difficult, perhaps impossible, for patients who are prescribed 10 or more separate items of medication every day to take them strictly as prescribed, even when (as in our study) they express a clear intent to do so. It’s time to take your pills, but they’re trapped inside the bottle, or blister pack, or another maddeningly impossible-to-open package.Since they are so easy to open, you should keep them away from children to avoid accidental ingestion. Supporting patients in taking their medication is a key policy and professional commitment, enshrined within ‘medicines optimisation’: a ‘person-centred approach to safe and effective medicines use, to ensure people obtain the best possible outcomes from their medicines’. Due to the lightness of the materials (cardboard and plastic) and the compact nature of the bespoke moulds, blister packs both weigh less and take up less space, which reduces transportation costs. As anyone with this condition knows, this can be an impossible task for RA hands, especially when your symptoms are flaring.

I soon learn that Marco’s friend Vicky helps him organise his medicines, though he tells me repeatedly that he could easily manage himself. The study reported here is part of the wider APOLLO-MM study (Addressing the Polypharmacy Challenge in Older People with Multimorbidity). A key point of difference is that in the Danish study the participants received at least daily visits from a mobile healthcare worker who collaborated with elders in their medicines management.If you spend a lot of time fetching prescriptions from the GP and picking up medicines from the pharmacy, ask the GP surgery if they can send prescriptions directly to the pharmacy. Heat seal blister cards are required for most pre-pack and automated medication packaging solutions.
