SUMMARY

This 1-day live facilitated virtual workshop teaches health care professionals the fundamentals of medication reconciliation (MedRec) and Best Possible Medication History (BPMH) while providing hands-on practice with case scenarios on how to conduct in-person and virtual medication history interviews.

ABSTRACT

MedRec is a formal process to ensure communication of accurate medication information throughout a person’s health care journey. The BPMH is the cornerstone of MedRec. This workshop is designed to prepare health care professionals to collect a BPMH through in-person and virtual medication history interviews in a variety of health care settings (e.g., acute care, home care, clinic visits, etc.). In addition, participants will practice MedRec at transitions of care. Whether you are seasoned or new to MedRec, this workshop will give you new ideas and hands-on practice with in-person and virtual medication history interviews.

Audience: Nurses, pharmacy technicians, pharmacists, care coordinators, EMS professionals, supervisors/managers, and other health care professionals.

Workshop Level: Novice to Intermediate
