Home Medicines Reviews
A Home Medicines Review (HMR) 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 medicines are being used effectively whilst avoiding any unwanted side effects or harm.
An HMR is available to anyone living independently that are 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 Australian Government will fund one Home Medicines Review every two years or on request from yourself following a clinical incident such as a fall or hospital visit.
