Reasons to Refer

Reasons to Refer
  • Comprehensive medication assessments -- understand what patients are actually taking, why and whether ongoing therapy is necessary. Useful for patients who see multiple prescribers or new patients to your practice
  • Deprescribing -- we can assess whether any long-term medications may no longer be needed and suggest a specific plan to safely taper and discontinue
  • Falls or memory impairment -- could there be a medication related cause? What options exist?
  • Specific symptom or disease management -- complex, medication-resistant symptoms may require more in-depth research and assessment of treatment options
  • Medication education and adherence support
Why refer?

  • Assessment and recommendations faxed back for your feedback to ensure we are all working from the same plan
  • We offer home visits (St. John's metro area) and distance delivery via FaceTime to patients who cannot attend our clinic in person
