Ramjaun A, Sudarshan M, Patakfalvi L, Tamblyn R, Meguerditchian AN. BMC Med Educ. 2015;15:33.
This systematic review aggregated studies that described education initiatives targeted at improving trainees' performance in medication reconciliation. Only seven studies were identified between 1980 and 2013, and none of the described interventions were the same. The authors suggest a combination of didactic, role-playing, and experiential learning sessions as a promising method for educating students about effective medication reconciliation practices.
