Purpose of the Call:
The purpose of this call is to learn how the Department of Family Medicine at Queen’s University was able to:
Raise awareness about medication safety issues ‐ specifically medication reconciliation in primary care.
Highlight the need for better communication and connectivity between hospitals, pharmacies, and primary care. (And how we can help each other.)
Suggest that primary care take on a leadership role in medication safety ‐ we can (and should!) "own" the list.
Stress the importance of medication reconciliation as a continuous, interdisciplinary, and collaborative activity.
