Safety and quality of care are at risk when a patient transitions between health care settings. Medication errors during these transitions can lead to patient harm and rehospitalizations. Including a pharmacist as a member of the patient's health care team during discharges from nursing homes and home health services can decrease medication discrepancies, improve patient engagement and reduce hospital readmissions.
Amanda Schroepfer, PharmD, BCACP, will describe how to include a pharmacist as part of the health care team during these transitions and the goals of medication therapy management (MTM). Lyn Lais, RN, will share how MTM services can benefit patients during care transitions in home health services.
