Western Node Collaborative Background Brandon Regional Health Authority – covers city of Brandon, MB and surrounding rural municipalities – services to ~ 180,000 people 1 regional hospital – 315 beds- serving Brandon RHA and many outside regions 5 Long Term Care facilities (PCH) and 1 Primary Access Center Public Health, Home Care, and Mental Health programs/services Approximately 100 physicians and 14 pharmacies

Western Node Collaborative Background Home Care working group developed in May 2007 Purpose - implementation of medication reconciliation in the Home Care program Decision to focus on clients admitted to the service of medication assistance for the Medication Reconciliation process –new or existing clients Plan to provide education for all home care clients regarding the importance of preparing & maintaining a current medication list

6 Coming Full Circle: AMI and Med Rec Across the Continuum. Western Node Collaborative Changes Tested #1: Compare medication list obtained at admission to Home Care for next 5 patients to DPIN and/or inpatient profile (if recently discharged) #3 Trial use of Universal Medication Form with 5 regular users of PCH Respite. Evaluate potential benefit of this form as a tool for all clients to maintain their own current medication list #4 Contact Community Pharmacies to inform them of our work and why they may receive calls from home care staff to clarify client’s medication lists P P P P P S D A D D D D S S S S A A A A #2: Trial using Home Care BPMH and Reconciliation form when collecting new client medication list or updating existing client medication list #5 Develop a BPMH prompt tool to aid staff in obtaining the most accurate medication history from the client

10 Coming Full Circle: AMI and Med Rec Across the Continuum. Western Node Collaborative Keys To Success Good communication with all stakeholders prior to and during implementation of medication reconciliation project is critical –suggest sending letter to local pharmacies and physicians prior to implementation explaining the project Gather baseline data and report to your team on the current situation prior to implementation to help motivate Develop easy to follow procedures for the use of new forms Create an updated process map so staff can see “the whole picture” of Med Rec once a process is developed Ongoing feedback from staff regarding what is working and what is not to assist with revisions as needed

11 Coming Full Circle: AMI and Med Rec Across the Continuum. Western Node Collaborative Lessons Learned Our provincial DPIN database cannot be the sole source to reconcile medications; in our region it should be used in conjunction with the pharmacy and then physician The entire process of medication reconciliation takes time, but is worthwhile, as discrepancies are present even in blister pack medications Our greatest source of discrepancies is often on hospital discharge The universal medication form (or other medication list tools) may not work for all clients (needs a motivated client or caregiver), but is a worthwhile tool to share with all new referrals to program

12 Coming Full Circle: AMI and Med Rec Across the Continuum. Western Node Collaborative Next Steps Continue to work on ways to gather data for our indicators by electronic process (Procura) Work with Procura to create a user-friendly medication list that can be printed and shared with the client and their physician Promote use of various medication list tools to all clients along with “You and Your Medications” book –UMF (Universal Medication Form) –blue Medication Record booklet –provincial “It’s Safe to Ask Med List” ( available June 2 nd )
