BACAT Medicines Support Needs Assessment

This 'brief adherence and concordance assessment tool' (BACAT) is endorsed by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. The tool is intended to be used to assess the support a patient requires to aid medication adherence. It can also be used to determine if a reasonable adjustment to medicines is required from the pharmacist or prescriber under the Disability Discrimination Act (1995). The assessor, in discussion with the patient, will determine the type(s) of support needed to ensure the patient derives maximum benefit from their medication in line with their preferences and values.
