Medication Review Services include:

Medication Review – Standard (MR-S)
The pharmacist meets with the patient to review their medications
and prepare a Best Possible Medication History (BPMH). The
purpose is to improve the patient’s understanding of their
medications, including what medications they are taking, why they
are being taken, and how best to take them. The BPMH can also
be shared with other health-care professionals, such as the
patient’s family physician or specialist.
Medication Review – Pharmacist Consultation (MR-PC)
Undertaken only when a medication management issue (MMI)
has been identified by a pharmacist during an MR-S. The
pharmacist, in collaboration with the patient, and, if applicable, the
prescriber(s), works to resolve the issue. This includes developing
and implementing a care plan to resolve the issue and evaluate
results.

Medication Review – Follow-Up (MR-F)
The pharmacist meets with patients who have already received a
complete MR-S or MR-PC and require follow-up to:

  • review a subsequent medication change,
  • address difficulties with understanding and/or implementing
    the care plan developed during an MR-PC, or
  • evaluate the care plan developed to resolve a medication
    management issue.

Eligible patients may receive one Medication Review (which can
include a pharmacist consultation or follow-up) once every six
months.

How to book a MedsCheck
Ask your pharmacist. You can book a MedsCheck appointment once a year.
Your pharmacist may also follow up with you if you:

  • are going into or coming out of the hospital
  • have had major changes in your medication
  • have a referral from your doctor

After your MedsCheck visit
You and your pharmacist will sign and date your MedsCheck personal medication record (a list of all your medications). It is important that you or your caregiver bring this record with you when you meet with your doctor or for any hospital visits.

What to bring
Make sure you bring the following to your MedsCheck appointment:

  • all the medications you are taking, or a list of them
  • any non-prescription drugs, such as vitamins and/or herbal remedies
  • your valid OHIP card (not required if you live in a long-term care home)
