Medication Reconciliation (MedRec) plays a key role in ensuring patient safety. It is a systematic process in which healthcare providers partner with patients, families and caregivers to create a complete and accurate, up-to-date list of the patient’s medications at time of admission. This list is used to verify/validate admission, transfer and discharge orders to reduce medication errors and adverse drug events at all transitions of care.
An interactive elearning module is available to be used by AHS staff and physicians to learn about the MedRec process.
The module takes 15 to 45 minutes to complete, and includes video and audio components. All healthcare providers are encouraged to complete the training. Please ensure your speakers are turned on if you have them.
IMPORTANT: Effective December 1, 2020, some users may experience technical difficulties with the eLearning module. As an alternative, the content has been converted into a pdf file; however, interactive features could not be replicated.
