Medication Management V3 EN

$100.00 CAD

Medication Management Standards promote a collaborative approach to prevent and reduce medication errors and near misses by addressing all aspects of the medication management process, from prescription, selection, preparation and dispensing to administration of the medication and ongoing monitoring of clients.

Client organizations are responsible for ensuring that the functions outlined in the medication management standards are completed by qualified individuals in line with applicable regulations and their scope of practice. In some cases, amendments were made to the scope of practice of nurses working in remote/isolated health services to fulfill some of the medication management functions normally completed by the pharmacy. In this case, the criteria in the Medication Management standards that relate to these medication management functions would be applicable.

The standards contain the following sections:

  • Planning the Medication Management System
  • Training and Competency Evaluation
  • Accessing Client and Medication Information
  • Selecting and Procuring Medications
  • Storing Medications in the Pharmacy and Client Service Areas
  • Prescribing and Ordering Medications
  • Preparing Medications
  • Labelling and Packaging Medications
  • Dispensing and Delivering Medications
  • Administering Medications and Client Monitoring
  • Evaluating the Medication Management System

    This is a standalone HSO standard and is not meant for assessment purposes. If you are part of an assessment program (such as accreditation) with one of our partners such as Accreditation Canada, NIAZ, IQG or others, your assessment provider will provide you with the assessment standard before it is introduced to your program. For information on assessment standards or to obtain the copy specific to your program, please contact your assessment provider.

    Requesting printed standards: Standards purchased online are delivered as printable PDF downloads. If you would like a copy printed and shipped to you, please email publications@healthstandards.org
