Approximately 30 percent of hospital admissions are due to adverse drug reactions in patients aged over 75 years.
Conducted by an accredited pharmacist, Home Medicine Reviews (HMR), also known as a Domiciliary Medication Management Review, can help your patients better manage and understand their medicines, potentially reducing adverse events.
You can find an accredited pharmacist by visiting accp.com.au or by speaking with your patient’s preferred community pharmacy.
