Campaign for Meds Management: April 2016

Topic: Self-Management and Support for Self-Management with a Case Study on Opioid Use

Date: Tuesday, April 262016


This Medication Safety Learning and Action Network (LAN) Event was open to:

  • QIN-QIOs
  • Patients and patient advocates interested in medication self-management
  • Pharmacy professionals interested in supporting medication self-management
  • Members of improvement collaboratives interested in deploying medication self-management and community strategies to support self-management

Call Summary:

This event presented an overview of the change package in development for use in the pilot phase of the Campaign for Meds Management (CMM). The change package includes guides for stakeholders the CMM engage as medication self-management partners: (1) patients and families, (2) physicians and office staff, and (3) payers. The change package is informed and driven by the experiences of medication users and those who support them in successfully managing their own medications. It builds on a decade of work done in developing toolkits for the self-management of chronic health conditions and support strategies that physician practices and payers can use. Through the use of a case study, the event included a focus on capturing innovative self-management practices for the safe and effective use of opioids.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe key elements of the CMM change package
  • Identify effective self-management practices for the safe and effective use of opioids
  • Articulate the expectations and Scope of Work (SOW) for voluntary participation in the CMM by interested pilot sites
