The MedsCheck for Long-Term Care consists of quarterly medication reviews and an annual in-depth medication analysis. The reviews are conducted by the pharmacist in the Long-Term Care home with objectives that include:
The quarterly reviews should include medication selection, dosage, hours and route of administration, duration of therapy, treatments, allergies and drug interactions. They will identify any possible drug related problems that may require a more in-depth therapy analysis (annual review) and follow-up in collaboration with the patient, caregiver and health care team.
