Medication Management Checklist

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

The HQCA developed the Medication Management Checklist for Supportive Living as part of a larger project undertaken by Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services (AHS) to improve medication management in continuing care.

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.
