Many patients today are prescribed multiple medications to treat various health concerns. As the number of medications available grows, it becomes difficult for the doctor, pharmacist, and patient to know which medications are resulting in adverse drug reactions and effects.

Researchers at Purdue University have developed a screening system, Pharmaceutical Therapy Related Quality of Life (PTRQoL) instrument. The PTRQoL system is a set of questionnaires that identify adverse drug reactions and effects associated with the 200 most popular prescription drugs. The PTRQoL system could be used by patients at a computer kiosk while they wait for their prescriptions to be filled. When the pharmacist is counseling the patient, they can utilize the results of the questionnaire to identify and focus on existing issues the patient may be experiencing. The PTRQoL system could also be used for mail-order patients to increase pharmacist/patient interaction.
