A medication review is a structured evaluation of a patient‘s medicines with the aim of optimising medicines use and improving health outcomes. RECIPE has developed a website
where you can find tools to help you with performing a medication review. For examples, it contains an easy tool that tells you when to prescribe a proton pump inhibitor prophylactically in case of anticoagulants. Additionally, the website contains short and readable summaries of frequently used guidelines (e.g. thrombosis prophylaxis).
Below you can watch an instruction video about performing a medication review (in Dutch). We will teach you step by step how to complete a thorough medication review.
