Summary This project examines the efficacy of tools that detect medication related problems in their ability to improve clinical outcomes following their use in emergency departments
Patients who present to the emergency department often have a number of medications prescribed, and are therefore at major risk of experiencing medication related problems. Patients are at major risk because of the acute nature of their medical condition, the complex nature of their treatments, the chronic illnesses they have, and the medications prescribed. A number of tools have been developed to determine the risk of patients experiencing medication related problems. Little work has been undertaken on analysing the nature of these tools, and of how they work in improving clinical outcomes following their use in emergency departments.
