Implementing an Electronic Medication Assessment Tool: Manage Risk & Promote Self-agency within the Detention Setting
It is not possible to eliminate risk in healthcare services. Risk management in healthcare involves risk awareness, risk mitigation, decision-making around risk-benefit ratios, and continuous quality improvement. The appropriate and timely use of medication for acute and chronic illness management and for illness prevention is a cornerstone of modern healthcare. Poor adherence to medication is one of the major contributors to ill-health, and strategies to improve medication adherence are an important part of health service function.
This presentation by Rhian Czech will describe the new medication management model introduced to immigration detention facilities, outline the challenges associated with its implementation, and will provide a detailed analysis of the considered benefits in terms of improving patient adherence to medications and managing risks.
