The authors conducted a 6-site mentored implementation study to assess the effects of implementing a best practice med-rec toolkit on unintentional medication discrepancies.
The best practice toolkit included a number of interventions:
- Provider education (how to take a good history, how to get an accurate med lists);
- Patient education (teach-back method on medication education and how to keep their own medication list); and
- Risk stratifying patients regarding their need for additional resources (based on what medications they are currently prescribed and the total number of medications).
