I performed the MedsCheck service at a community pharmacy. Typically, it took me between 20 – 25 minutes to complete one MedsCheck. Hence, in the community pharmacy setting I worked in, the 30-minute time allotted by the government appeared to be sufficient. The length of the MedsCheck varied depending on the number of medications patients were on, their medical complexities, adherence issues identified and patients’ questions/concerns.
