How It Works
What is a Medication Review?
A medication review is defined as:
“A patient-care service that seeks to enhance a patient’s understanding of, and improve the health outcomes of, their medication regimen.”

This service is provided through a one-on-one consultation with one of our pharmacists in a private area of the pharmacy. Our pharmacist will identify all the medications you are taking, including prescription and non-prescription medications. They will then discuss with you how the medications are best taken and if appropriate, create a medication management plan to address any drug-related issues that may arise during the consultation. At the end of the medication review process, our pharmacist will provide you with a Best Possible Medication History form, which lists all your medications. You can use this form as a reminder tool to remember to take your medications or you can share it with your family doctor or any other health professionals who may need this information.
