The Joint Commission has established medication reconciliation as a National Patient Safety Goal, but it has not been studied much in trauma even though it is integral to safe patient care. This article reviews the existing medication reconciliation strategies and their applicability to the trauma setting. To perform medication reconciliation, hospitals use a variety of strategies including pharmacists or pharmacy technicians, electronic medical record tools, and patient-centered strategies. All of these strategies are limited in trauma. Subpopulations such as injured children, the elderly, and those with brain trauma are particularly challenging and are at risk for suboptimal care from inaccurate medication reconciliation. Further research is necessary to create a safe and efficient system for trauma patients.
