Advancing Pediatric Medication Discharge Teaching

The discharge process is frequently acknowledged as complex, especially for pediatric patients. In the literature, experts believe that pediatric patients are at greater risk for medication errors compared to adult patients. Therefore, comprehensive medication education and improved access to information have been identified as strategies to address these concerns. An innovative collaboration between pharmacy and other healthcare providers was implemented to improve care coordination for complex patients, improve medication safety, and decrease readmissions.
