Medication management is important because medication can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life, by relieving pain, reducing the risk for infections, or improving their ability to function.
Medications are given in order for doctors or other healthcare professionals to help patients achieve an optimum level of health.
Medication management is not always easy and it does take time. The medication management program helps patients take care of their medication so they have the best possible chance at living a healthy life while being on medication.
It is important that medication management can be accessible to everybody so that people do not have any barriers in accessing medication. Improper medication take can lead to many additional costs like hospitalization or even lead to death if the medication does not work properly.
