It was identified that on admission a number of patients had little knowledge of what medicines they were taking, what they were for or how to take them correctly. It was also identified that some medicines related readmissions were due to lack of knowledge and adherence.
Historically few patients were provided with Medicines Reminder.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
