The key reminder was to take an accurate history-review medication history for drug interactions, poly pharmacy and iatrogenic effects. This was the underlying message for health professionals. Accurate history taking, communication with relevant health professionals and patient education are key components to medication reconciliation. This facilitates closing the loop and decreasing the chance of medication error. I agree with the comment on the e health software. This will fail if not updated by all health professionals in the patient chain. Collaboration is paramount.

Medication Reconciliation beyond the medication list. very well presented and enforced the important when receiving / documentation from the client there medical history and current medications. For my own learning at times I do ask the Client when giving out medications " what's this tablet For" if they say I don't now ! I voice my concern to RN and MO .
