Home Medicines Reviews (HMR)

8576618657_219e8c91d0_zWant to manage your medicines at the comfort of your home?

You can utilise my service as an accredited consultant pharmacist who has specialist training to conduct Home Medicines Reviews  (HMR), a free service fully funded by Medicare at no cost to you.

The area of my service include Brisbane and Gold Coast

The languages you can utilise are English and Mandarin.

If you take 5 or more medications or have several health conditions, you may benefit from a HMR.

1. Please discuss with your GP who will give you a referral of Domiciliary Medication Management – Home Medicines Review if a HMR is appropriate for you.

2. Once the HMR referral is received from you or your GP,  we can arrange a time to visit you in your home or another location if you prefer.

3. I visit you for 60 minutes 

  • Assist you in understanding your medications by explaining how your medications work
  • Advise you on the potential adverse effects so you know what to look out for
  • Discuss your concerns about your medications
  • Ensure the appropriate use of your medications, including complementary medicines (natural or herbal medicines or over-the-counter medicines)
  • Demonstrate correct use of medical devices, such as inhalers and blood glucose monitors
  • Help remove any medicines that are expired or no longer taken
  • Provide advice on lifestyle factor modifications
  • Provide advice on safe storage of medicines

4. HMR report containing my recommendations (sometimes it includes a reduction in the number of medications when appropriate) will be sent to your GP.

5. Your GP will discuss the HMR report with you and give you a ‘Medication Management Plan’ to help you manage your medicines better at home.

If there is any significant change in your condition or medicines, you may benefit from another HMR. Please discuss with your GP.
