Medication Management Checklist

This checklist presents 74 leading practices for medication safety in supportive living.

The Medication Management Checklist for Supportive Living was developed to help those who work with residents in supportive living to:

  • Learn about the features of a safe medication system and leading practices that help ensure safe and effective medication therapy for residents.
  • Identify potential vulnerabilities in a site’s medication system that could put residents at risk, and that could be addressed through a quality and safety improvement program.

The checklist is intended to be used by a multidisciplinary team, typically consisting of a site manager, frontline care provider, home-care nurse or case manager, and pharmacist who meet to share their knowledge of the medication system in a particular site. A self-assessment process helps identify vulnerabilities within the system, which can then be addressed through a quality and safety improvement process. The checklist booklet includes suggestions for a successful team meeting and creating an improvement plan.
