North Hills Community Outreach is recruiting a core group of volunteers to be on our Home Meds Team!
No medical or pharmaceutical background is needed!
Volunteers simply complete a data collection interview/assessment with the seniors and data entry into the web-based application after the interview. Medication data review and follow up is completed by a pharmacist.
Home Meds is a nationally acclaimed, evidence-based medication safety program that provides individual medication screenings for seniors. NHCO is partnering with AGEWELL Pittsburgh and Wesley Family Services to provide the Home Meds program to seniors in our communities.
Screenings identify potentially adverse effects due to medication duplication and errors, which can be serious and costly — but are preventable.
Volunteers should be very comfortable with one-on-one in-person interviewing and collecting and entering data using web-based applications, and should be able to attend two required training sessions.
