This webinar will discuss the lessons learned in the development, implementation and outcome analysis of an interdisciplinary medication management program on an inpatient unit of a rehabilitation hospital. This program was initiated and lead by occupational therapy clinicians and involved participation from nursing, speech language pathologists, neuropsychologists, physicians and pharmacists. The planning phase lasted nearly a year, followed by a six week pilot program and time spent for outcome review. Positive outcomes were noted as evidenced by all participants not being readmitted into our hospital system within 30 days of discharge. We will discuss the challenges and successes during the various stages of the program as well as our future plans to expand and improve the program.
- Describe the rationale for the development of a medication management program
- Implement methods discussed to plan their own interdisciplinary program
- Identify effective methods for the development and implementation of an interdisciplinary medication management program
