|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding the implementation of a pharmacist-led transitional care service at an acute general hospital. Introduction: The provision of a pharmacist-led transitional care service enhances the safe transition of patients across various health settings. A novel pharmaceutical service was developed within a general acute hospital in Malta, Europe, to expand patient accessibility to pharmacist services during the discharge phase. This was performed by allocating a transitional care pharmacist to increase direct patient contact and active pharmacist participation as part of the multidisciplinary clinical team. Aims: • To devise and implement a patient-centred pharmacist-led discharge service within the acute general hospital of Malta; • To pilot a novel medication reconciliation based service at discharge.|
