Residential Medication Management Review (RMMR)

A Residential Medication Management Review (RMMR) is a way for you to use the knowledge and skills of a qualified and trained accredited clinical pharmacist to review your patient’s medications to ensure medicines are being used effectively whilst avoiding any unwanted side effects or harm.

An RMMR is available to everyone at the time they move to a residential Aged Care Home and can also be performed for your patient by a Ward MM pharmacist every two years or on your request following a clinical incident such as a fall, change in clinical condition or circumstance where you believe their medications may not be working optimally.
