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.
