Medication reviews conducted by specialists, namely geriatricians and pharmacists, can be used to optimise medication use among residents of aged care facilities. However, because visits by specialists are infrequent and expensive, reviews do not occur consistently, nor do they occur simultaneously among GPs, Geriatricians and Pharmacists. Telehealth provides opportunities to overcome these difficulties. This presentation covers findings from a study conducted to test the feasibility of a telehealth platform to enable collaboration of pharmacists and geriatricians in residential medication reviews. Also, the findings from a scoping review on telehealth medication reviews will provide an overview of the evidence for these interventions.
