What is the role of the Discharge

What is a Home Mediation
Review (HMR)?
The DLP is a pharmacist who works for
Logan Hospital who provides follow-up
phone call(s) after discharge to discuss
medications.
With your permission, the DLP may
need to contact your community
pharmacy, hospital doctor or GP. The
DLP may give you the option of
receiving another phone call if there
our outstanding issues with your
medications.
An accredited pharmacist conducts an
interview with you about your medications
in the comfort of your own home. They
can provide advice on your medications
and write a report to your GP.
Who has referred me to the
DLP?
A HMR is useful for people who:
 have recently spent time in hospital.
 are concerned about their
medications.
 are confused about their medications.
 do not always remember to take their
medications.
The DLP can help answer questions
that you have about your medications or
the medications of the person you are
caring for. The DLP can help facilitate a
Home Medication Review (HMR)
through your General Practitioner (GP).
What do I need to do?
To participate in this service you must
first provide verbal consent to your
hospital ward pharmacist or over the
phone to the DLP.
Please let the pharmacist know of an
appropriate time to call you and who
usually looks after your mediations.
The DLP may also ask specific
questions about your experience with
your mediations after discharge. These
are routine questions that will help to
assist the pharmacist to understand how
you are managing your medications at
home.
You have been referred to the DLP by
your hospital ward pharmacist.
People who may benefit from the
service provided by the DLP include
those who:
 have had significant changes to their
medications during their hospital
stay.
 take more than five medications.
 take medications that require close
monitoring.
 have difficulty managing
medications.
 take more than twelve doses per day
of medications.
 use dose administration aids (e.g.
webster packs or sachet packs).
Who should have a HMR?
How much does a HMR cost?
The pharmacist’s review and report is
paid by the Australian Government, so it
will not cost you anything. Your GP may
bulk-bill or charge you for the GP
consultations.
If you (or someone you care for) might
benefit from having an HMR, talk to your
GP or pharmacist about organising one.
