Launch of My Medication Passport

Wednesday, 17 April 2013

The NIHR CLAHRC for Northwest London is pleased to announce the launch of My Medication Passport. The passport was designed and tested by patients and is a tool to help them manage their health by keeping track of their medications and key medical information.

The passport is now available as a pocket booklet and downloadable smart phone application for both Android and iPhones from the CLAHRC Website: http://goo.gl/5YFfk.

Included in the passport pack is 50(+) passports, a FAQ and promotional materials. The passport is free, with free postage and packaging.

 

The passport allows patients and carers to keep an up-to-date list of their medications by recording medicine name, dose, and timings for all their regular and as-needed medicines; it also allows changes in treatment to be kept and will facilitate the communication of medical information between patients and healthcare professionals.  Both booklet and electronic versions of My Medication Passport are flexible enough to enable patients to add details pertinent to their health and/or specific medication condition such as allergies and sensitivities, dates of vaccinations and screenings, home treatments and medication aids as well as hospital information if warranted.

 

Of use at any point in the patient’s care, community or hospital, My Medication Passport provides the user with easy to retrieve key information to communicate to healthcare professionals, thus saving time for both and ensuring accurate information transfer.
