A safe drug treatment plan encompasses the full range of measures for an optimum medication process with the aim of minimising or avoiding medication errors and preventable risks for patients during the course of their treatment. In order to improve safe drug treatment a number of action plans have been put in place over the years. Patients receiving prescriptions from several non-communicating medical sources, discarding medication plans or taking medication without professional advice potentially risk unwanted drug effects. In order to improve safe drug treatment levels a complete knowledge of patient medication is required. As a result, better communications between the various sources, i.e. general physicians, specialists, patients and pharmacies are needed.
