DUR stands for Drug Utilization Review. In healthcare, particularly in pharmacy practice, DUR refers to a structured process of reviewing and monitoring prescription drug use. The goal of Drug Utilization Review is to ensure the appropriate use of medications, improve patient outcomes, and prevent potential issues such as adverse drug reactions.
There are three main types of Drug Utilization Review: prospective, concurrent, and retrospective.
DUR is a valuable component of pharmacy practice that contributes greatly to making medication intake safe and effective.
