    Thanks everybodu for your input. This hub is great! I remember when i used to work in the UK that i was amazed at the role of pharmacist since each ward had one allocated. We dont have that here in Spain (at least where i work) and it´s such a shame since medicine reconciliation is vital in our opinion. However, we do have digital notes so they are readily avalibale to any professional within a certain organisation. Because, (very similar to whar Douglas has ponted out, ) we too have different organisations using different digital notes programs that end up not communicating with one another. Effort s are being made to create a single programm accesible from all local organisations so we can keep track of patients across the care spectrum: Whether we will see it before we retire that´s another issue Summarizing, we seem to be on the same boat to a certain extent; trying to work out safe ways to handle patients´medications. congratulations to everybody on your efforts Kind regards

    Hi everybody This is Jaione from Spain (we are in the North, Basque Region) and i am a nurse working in collaboration with the Patient Safety Team in our local NHS (Basque Health Service). First of all, I would like to congratulate the team for this hub which i think is a wonderful idea. Secondly, i would like to apologize for the language, since, although i lived in England many years ago, that is not the case anymore and I'm afraid i don't speak as well as I used to. I would like to comment a problem that we encounter very often in our organization which is related to patient's regular medications when they are admitted to hospital. We do have online prescriptions for both acute and community settings but the programs don't really speak to each other so, for example, if I take a blood pressure pill everyday and i get admitted into hospital, chances are that my blood pressure tablet won't get prescribed during my in-hospital stay. The logical thing to do would be to change both online systems so they communicate to each other, but that's not possible at the moment. I wanted to ask whether other systems have the same problem and, if so, if there is any strategy implemented to alleviate this issue. I hope i have expressed myself as clearly as possible. Thanks very much once more for this hub! Kind regards Jaione
