Initiatives

MEDICATION UTILIZATION MANAGEMENT

This initiative is comprised of three drivers:
  1. Addressing polypharmacy
  2. Understanding usage vs. wastage
  3. The development of a hospital formulary
Medication reviews were conducted within the circle of care with a collaborative multidisciplinary approach with physicians, pharmacists, nurses, residents, and family members, to design processes and implement strategies around polypharmacy and risk reduction for each resident.

The Medication Utilization Management Initiative has been chosen to be included in the upcoming BC Health Leaders Conference in November 2019.
