Medication Management Reviews
Medication Management Review (MMR) accreditation allows pharmacists to be remunerated for conducting Home Medicines Reviews (HMRs) and Residential Medication Management Reviews (RMMRs) through Community Pharmacy Agreement funding.
A medication management review is comprehensive collaborative review of a patient's medicines that is conducted by an accredited pharmacist at the place of residence of the patient (I.e. a patient’s home for the case of a HMR or a residential aged care facility for the case of an RMMR). A referral from a GP or specialist is required prior to the commencement of these service. For more information on program rules see HMR Program Rules or RMMR Program Rules.
The objectives of MMR are to achieve safe, effective and appropriate use of medicines by detecting and addressing medicine-related problems that interfere with the patient’s desired outcomes improve the patient’s quality of life and health by using a best practice approach, that involves cooperation between the GP, pharmacist, other relevant health professionals and the patient (and where appropriate, their carer) improve the patient’s and health professional’s knowledge and understanding about the patient’s medicines build cooperative working relationships between members of the healthcare team in the interests of patient health and wellbeing.
The College is dedicated to providing pharmacists with the education and training necessary to work to full scope of practice, including the review of medication, and looks forward to supporting pharmacists on their pathway to becoming accredited Australia wide.
