About

Obtaining an accurate and complete medication history, known as a best possible medication history (BPMH), is the first step in the medication reconciliation process and forms the basis for therapeutic decisions.

This online learning module is centred around a video that guides clinicians on how to obtain and record a BPMH.

The module explains why at least two sources of information are used to obtain the BPMH and the reasoning behind how medication history taking techniques can influence the accuracy of the history obtained.
