Abstract: A poster presentation regarding pharmacist-led discharge service at an acute general hospital. Introduction: Transition of care relies on the provision of a supportive patient process, starting at admission and continuing at every transition point. An innovative model of pharmacist intervention was proposed by redesigning the discharge process, to include pharmacist interventions prior to patient discharge from hospital. Aims: • To develop a structured, patient centred pharmacist- led discharge service at an acute general hospital. • To promote direct patient counselling at discharge. • To provide the opportunity for novel pharmaceutical services to expand within the local scenario.
