not just for medical students — Taking a Good Medication History

I just reviewed a new teaching video entitled:  “Taking a Good Medication History -A patient engagement tool for medical schools”, a free program produced by Emmi Solutions.     I saw a posting [HealthLiteracy 5403]  Free resource for educators,  med/nursing schools, educators.    It is a 10 minute program available for viewing at http://www.emmisolutions.com/taking-a-good-medication-history.html.    The term “medication reconciliation was explained and a good review of steps to gaining good information from patients was outlined.

Geri Lynn Baumblatt; Editorial Director | Emmi Solutions; 312.568.4078 | geri@emmisolutions.com posted the link.     She said – ” click through using the ‘contact us here’ link on the above page to sign up for your own link to use with students, or go here to get your own link: http://www.emmisolutions.com/medschool.html”

Although originally directed for medical students, it is suitable for any health care education students who are responsible for interviewing patients/clients for a health/medication history.     We are encouraged to  pass this information on to” educators, instructors, med/nursing schools, students, or to any other websites that might be interested in listing it as a resource.”

It is well worth your review and consideration for adoption.    The Joint Commission has safety standards for which this well address a patient safety need.    AHRQ will also be posting a link to the video as part of their Quality Tools.
