|Outline of Final Research Achievements
We have developed a novel discharge drug information format to prevent polypharmacy relapse in older people. Based on a survey of primary care physicians and pharmacists, we extracted a necessary patients’ drug information in care transition that contained interventions for prescription during their admission to an acute care facility. Five pieces of information were extracted: 1) drug information, 2) evidence of prescribing and de-prescribing, 3) patient’s post-intervention progress, 4) medication adherence and 5) patient's feelings about the prescription. The novel format was suitable for tabular form and use of checkboxes.
