Abstract

ABSTRACT: Brown Bag Medication Review (BBMR) events, traditionally offered by pharmacists, improve medication management for older adults. This study incorporated faith community nurses (FCNs) in BBMR events, hypothesizing that support by the FCN during and following the event would reduce medication related problems and improve medication self-care practices of older adults. Results describe and support the role of FCNs in brown bag events.
