La conciliation médicamenteuse : perception du pharmacien d'officine en France et au Québec

Abstract : During my 5th year internship at the University Hospital in Quebec from June to September 2019, a study was conducted to analyze the perception of city pharmacists regarding medication reconciliation at discharge. The study took place in 3 general hospitals in Montreal (Fleury Hospital, Jean-Talon Hospital and Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur-de-Montréal) from July 11 to 25, 2019. One year later, a similar study was conducted in France, at the Centre Hospitalier Charles Perrens in Bordeaux, from July 20, 2020 to September 20, 2020. The objective was to compare the drug reconciliation activity between the two territories and to explore areas for improvement in order to optimize this practice. To carry out the study, two distinct questionnaires, adapted to each of the health systems, were developed. The Quebec questionnaire consisted of 9 questions and the French questionnaire consisted of 11 questions. Each questionnaire consisted of open-ended and multiple-choice questions. Fifty responses were studied in Quebec, compared to 23 in France. In Quebec, medication reconciliation is a process that is rooted in practice. On the other hand, the level of knowledge in France remains very heterogeneous, with 22% of the dispensing pharmacists surveyed not being familiar with this practice. In addition, a second difference is noticeable in the tools used to transfer information (Dossier Santé Québec, Secure Messaging, Fax, Pharmaceutical File, Shared Medical File, etc.). This work made it possible to show the importance and necessity of an optimal information system to be able to carry out the activity of drug reconciliation in the best possible way and thus strengthen the city-hospital link.
