Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Healthcare training will address how to overcome the common difficulties faced by healthcare facilities in meeting the medication reconciliation requirements and describe proven success strategies.

Description

The Joint Commission’s patient safety initiative – Medication Reconciliation – became a required element for accreditation as of January 1, 2006.

Yet many providers continue to struggle with compliance. Medication reconciliation requires that a complete and current list of a patient’s medications be obtained at the start of the patient’s care, updated during the course of care, and communicated to next care provider. These may seem like simple tasks, yet ensuring that these tasks get done is challenging. This presentation will address how to overcome the common difficulties faced by healthcare facilities in meeting the medication reconciliation requirements and describe proven success strategies.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • What must be done to meet the Joint Commission’s medication reconciliation patient safety goal
  • How to identify and resolve the system vulnerabilities that contribute to medication reconciliation problems
  • Tactics for securing and documenting patient medication information during the first patient encounter
  • Practical strategies for achieving medication reconciliation successes at the transitional points in hospital care
  • How to comply with the medication reconciliation requirements in outpatient diagnostic and treatment areas
  • What can be done to increase caregiver adherence to the medication reconciliation requirements
  • How to evaluate compliance with reconciliation practices

  • Front line staff involved in medication reconciliation
  • Quality and patient safety directors
