Accurate medication reconciliation is a crucial first step in the hospital admission process. Omitted or incorrectly added medications have both clinical and financial implications. The hospital trialed the use of sixth-year pharmacy students to assist the medication reconciliation process in the emergency department (ED). The goal was to identify potential barriers to adequate medication reconciliation, to help overcome these barriers, and to reduce potential harm to the patient.
