Treatment dp medication reconciliation
Sponsor University Hospital, Grenoble
Start date April 2014
End date October 2015
Trial size 1076 participants
Trial identifier NCT02071472, DCIC 13 16


The objective is to evaluate the impact of an electronic pharmaceutical record used for medication reconciliation by a pharmacist associated to the anesthesiologist consultation

Experimental intervention:

medication reconciliation by a pharmacist using an electronic pharmaceutical record before the anesthesiologist consultation for planned surgery patients. The clinical pharmacist communicates the recommendations regarding the drug therapy to the anesthesiologist orally and using a specific formulary.

Control intervention:

Conventional anesthesiologist consultation for planned surgery patients.

Additional Information

Official title Evaluation of the Impact of an Electronic Pharmaceutical Record Used for Medication Reconciliation by a Pharmacist Associated to the Anesthesiologist Consultation
Description Anesthesiology consultation is mandatory in France for planned surgery. It is part of the concept of anesthesia safety. The main goal is to assess the anesthetic and surgical risk including clinical and drug features likely to interfere with the anesthesia. The medication reconciliation is a central part of this consultation especially in order to assess the allergic risk and hemostasis disorders. However, access to comprehensive and reliable data concerning the consumption of health products by the patient represents a major challenge. The "Dossier Pharmaceutique" (DP) is an electronic pharmaceutical record including medications (prescribed medications, over the counter medications, complementary and alternative medicines) delivered by community pharmacists over a four month period. Hospital pharmacists have access to the DP of hospitalized patients in order to improve the quality of the medication reconciliation. These informations regarding medication of the patients will be shared with anesthesiologists.
