United Kingdom is maybe the last country in Europe to complete the shift to patient packs. The shift is actually not yet completed, as it is still common in England and Wales to use the scissors to adjust the packs to the prescribed number of tablets. The Netherlands also adjust pack sizes. Another major difference between the European countries.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
