The process of obtaining an up-to-date and accurate patient medication list, medicines reconciliation (MedRec), is vital to ensuring patient safety. Despite its high status as a patient safety issue, and the efforts made to drive and implement robust MedRec processes, further efforts are required to identify and disseminate best practice (Greenwald et al 2010). This article outlines some of the principles involved in conducting effective MedRec and invites interested nurses to join a working group that aims to develop a best-practice toolkit.
