Abstract

This paper aims to provide guidance to develop and implement processes to promote the provision of patient-held medicines reminder charts and a contact telephone number for the Hospital Pharmacy Helpline.  These should be readily available to patients when they are transferred between care settings, particularly upon discharge from hospital.
