Improving safety after hospitalization in older persons on high-risk medications

This study is a randomized controlled trial focused on older patients recently discharged from the hospital who have been prescribed medications within one of three high-priority, high-risk drug classes.  The aim is to reduce the risk of clinically important medication errors.  The clinical trial will determine the value of a multifaceted medication error and adverse drug event reduction intervention with a special focus on in-home assessment by a clinical pharmacist.
