AHRQ to Host Continuing-education Webinar on Medication Reconciliation Supported by Clinical Pharmacists

Holly Harmon

A May 20 webinar hosted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)’s Effective Health Care (EHC) Program will explore how medication reconciliation can help prevent medication errors during transitions in care. Some evidence shows that pharmacist-led processes could prevent medication discrepancies and potential adverse drug events after discharge. Registration is open here: http://bit.ly/1DAQjgC

Additional resources on medical reconciliation are available from AHRQ’s EHC Program. To learn more, access the full Making Health Care Safer II research report (Medication Reconciliation Supported by Clinical Pharmacists is Chapter 25) or read an executive summary of the full Making Health Care Safer II report.
