MedsCheck Study – presented at OPA Annual Conference
MedsCheck Study – presented at the Ontario Pharmacists Association Annual Conference
After 9 years Ontario's MedsCheck medication review programs have been evaluated for clinical and cost-effectiveness in a study conducted by the OPEN team led by Linda MacKeigan, of the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto, and Lisa Dolovich, of the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University, with expertise contribution from the Toronto Health Economics and Technology Assessment Collaborative.
The initial conclusions drawn from the study are that “program refinements are needed to ensure that pharmacists are providing the service to those with the highest needs and going beyond obtaining a reconciled medication list to assessing a person’s medication-taking behaviour and intervening as needed to achieve better health outcomes”.
