Medicine Management Plan: The ‘living’ document


The LTC Service requires pharmacists to refer frequently to the Medicines Management Plan, updating it as a patient’s circumstances change. 

Yet once this document has been loaded in a patient diary it slips away with historical Rxs……

How can it be kept current and easily accessible?

Use the COPY function


Example: To review the medicines management plan every time an LTC patient gets a new set of Rx’s, copy it, so it lines up with the Rxs.

To quickly copy the Medicines Managemant Plan:

  • Click on the note in the history grid and F2 View Edit,

  • F5 Copy Note and Yes to prompt.

  • F12 Accept Details.

If there is a change in the patient’s circumstances, at any time, the medicines management plan can still be copied forward and edited,

to reflect the change and any resulting decisions. 

This keeps a good audit trail of when decisions were made, and why, and keeps the plan alive and easily accessible.
