|Abstract:||A poster presentation on facilitating transition of care between outpatient diabetic clinic and community pharmacies. Introduction: Pharmacist-led interventions have shown to decrease drug related problems (DRPs) and improve clinical outcomes especially during the transitioning between different healthcare settings. Patients are particularly prone to medication errors during transitioning, as medical data can get lost. This threatens patient safety by increasing the possibility of losing critical clinical information leading to delay of care and inappropriate monitoring. Aims & objectives: To develop and implement a pharmaceutical care service at the outpatient setting for diabetic patients. The objectives of this study were: • Perform medicine reconciliation to identify drug therapy problems (DRPs) • Develop a Transition of Care Document using the comprehensive list which was compiled during the medicine reconciliation.|
