A Residential Management Review (RMMR) is a service for permanent residents of aged care homes. It involves collaboration between the GP and pharmacist to review the medication management needs of the resident.
We involve nurses and care staff in the process which is particularly valuable. We are passionate about achieving quality outcomes for the resident. We have an established procedure for the resident's consent to access information, collect data and deliver a medication management service.
