BPMH Training for Pharmacy Technicians

Understanding the hospital pharmacy technician's role in the medication reconciliation process

Thursday, April 20, 2017
1 day workshop

This one-day interactive workshop provides hospital pharmacy technicians with fundamentals of medication reconciliation (MedRec), hands-on practice in conducting a Best Possible Medication History (BPMH) interview and documenting the necessary components of a BPMH.

MedRec is a formal process to ensure communication of accurate medication information throughout a person's healthcare journey. The BPMH is the cornerstone of MedRec. This one-day interactive workshop is designed to prepare hospital pharmacy technicians to collect a BPMH in the context of the MedRec process in an acute care setting. Whether you are new to MedRec or are a seasoned MedRec technician, this workshop will give you a fresh perspective, new ideas and tools that you can start using right away in your practice.

On completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the role of MedRec as it affects patient care
  2. Understand where and how MedRec takes place
  3. Understand the role of the BPMH at all care transitions
  4. Describe the process of completing a BPMH

Directions to ISMP Canada

4711 Yonge Street
(Procter & Gamble building)

On entry to the building, check in with Security to obtain a visitor ID badge (next to the lobby elevators).

(416-733-3131 - ISMP Canada)

Driving Directions:

Note that parking is NOT available in the Proctor and Gamble building. Indoor paid parking is available at the Sheppard Centre (Yonge and Sheppard). Outdoor paid parking is available on the southwest corner of Yonge and Sheppard (1 block north of the office) and on the north side of Avondale Ave, just east of Yonge Street (2 blocks south of the office).

Transit:

We are located on the "Yonge Line" - please get off at the Sheppard Station. Exit the station at the south end of the platform - "Poyntz Avenue". (Tip: The last car of the Subway, when it is heading North, will put you at the "Poyntz Avenue" exit.) Proceed through the turnstile, into the Procter & Gamble building, up the escalator to the Security Desk, and get a Visitor's Pass.

If you return the same way, you must have tokens or a MetroPass, as there are only turnstiles when you leave through the Procter & Gamble building - no TTC representative is on duty. If you only have tickets, then it is a short walk outside up Yonge Street to the North entrance of the Sheppard Station (Sheppard Centre), where there are TTC attendants.
