Medication reconciliation for reducing drug-discrepancy adverse events

Boockvar KS, Carlson LaCorte H, Giambanco V, Fridman B, Siu A. Medication reconciliation for reducing drug-discrepancy adverse events. American Journal of Geriatric Pharmacotherapy. 2006 Sep;4(3):236-243.

The authors conclude that pharmacist-led medication reconciliation and communication with the physician reduced discrepancy-related adverse drug events (ADEs) in patients returning from the hospital to the nursing home. Further studies are needed to identify the most efficient reconciliation process that can then be adapted to all care settings.
