Abstract: A poster presentation regarding pharmacist-led medicine reconciliation at diabetes outpatient clinic. Introduction: Medication reconciliation post-medical consultation can indeed prevent medication errors. During the transitioning between one interface (secondary care), and another (primary care) important medical data can get lost leading to serious consequences. Healthcare professionals are aware that there seem to be gaps in the system which needs to be overcome to ensure a smooth and seamless transition between these interfaces. Harmonization between different healthcare providers will greatly reduce these gaps within the health system. In this study, subsequent to the medicine reconciliation, the patient also benefits from a comprehensive list of medications which forms an important part of the pharmaceutical care plan. This will ultimately target the continuity of care across the secondary and primary care interface.
