What are the Diabetes Medscheck and Medscheck Consultations
Diabetes MedsCheck and MedsCheck services are a review of a patient’s medication regime by one of our Pharmacists and will focus on the patients education and self-management. The aim is to understand patients medical history, identify chronic conditions, gain better adherence to prescribed medicines, address concerns and inturn reduce the occurence of unhelpful or adverse medication reactions.

Diabetes MedsCheck is designed for patients who have recently diagnosed or poorly controlled type 2 diabetes, and are unable to gain timely access to a diabetes educator or health service. We will also provide guidance on correct use of your monitoring devices, insulin pens and glucometers.

MedsCheck is geared to patients who are taking multiple medications (5+), or have had a recent medical event or diagnosis that may increase the risk of medication misadventure.

In both the Diabetes Medscheck and Medscheck Consultation, the Pharmacist will aim to detect any problems the patient may be having with their medications; help increase their knowledge about the use, storage and actions of their medications; and improve effective use of their medications. We will develop a personalised action plan for you and even communicate with other healthcare professionals/providers to arrange follow ups as required.
