Home Medicines Reviews
A Home Medicines Review (HMR) (also referred to as a DMMR) is a way for you to use the knowledge and skills of a qualified and trained accredited clinical pharmacist to review your patients medications to ensure they are being used effectively whilst avoiding any unwanted side effects or harm.
An HMR is available to anyone living independently who is at risk of experiencing medication misadventure. An HMR is free for Australian residents that have a current Medicare or Department of Veteran’s Affairs card.
The need for a Home Medicines Review service is determined by the GP or medical specialist in consultation with their patient. Ward MM Clinical Pharmacists are fully reimbursed by Government to deliver one comprehensive medication review, and up to two follow up reviews, within a 9 month time-frame.
