Obtaining an accurate medication history (known as a best possible medication history or BPMH, is the first step in the medication reconciliation process and helps with making therapeutic decisions.

The module includes a video which explains what information should be recorded and how certain techniques can influence the accuracy of the history obtained.

Nurses and pharmacists can earn professional development points by completing the module, which was developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care and NPS MedicineWise.
