The Institute of Medicine (IOM) stated that preventable medication errors are the most common type of errors in healthcare.
It is of fundamental significance when building a safer care continuum, as it highlights the reason for continuous and
more vigilant medication reconciliation and required effort at all interfaces of care, including community. Without a
robust medication reconciliation process, the potential for catastrophic outcomes remains a constant concern. Prevention
of medication errors is essential through strategies that are based in evidence of medication reconciliation strategies on
medication errors in community.
