Home Medication Reviews
Do you know your medicines? If medicines aren’tused properly, or if the wrong ones are used together, the results can be serious. Each year more than 140,000 Australians have to go to hospital with problems caused by their medicines. It has been shown that in up to 69% of these cases the problem could have been avoided. older people are particularly at risk. As a response to this problem the government has funded the Home Medicine Review (HMR).
At the Shoal Bay Pharmacy we have four pharmacists qualified to conduct Home Medication Reviews, including proprietors Ruth Mueller and Justine Fairbairn.
