Medication Action Plan
A care plan is the health professional’s course of action for helping a patient achieve specific health goals.
In addition to the care plan, which is developed by the pharmacist and used in the collaborative care of the patient, the patient receives an individualized medical action plan (MAP) for use in medication self-management. Completion of the MAP is a collaborative effort between the patient and the pharmacist.
The MAP reinforces a sense of patient empowerment and encourages the patient’s active participation in his or her medication-adherence behavior. Each and every patient is unique and presents a different case. We work with each patient to create a road map that will enhance the medication prescribed while including factors such as work, finances and lifestyle choices.
