Medication Management Standards for Community-Based Organizations
The standard specifies the requirements for community-based organizations to deliver quality and safe health services to clients and families.
The standard provides:
- Community-based organizations with guidance on how to ensure quality and safety within their unique institutional context
- Policy makers with a blueprint for the requirements to designate and recognize community-based organizations in their jurisdictions
- External assessment bodies with measurable requirements to include in assessment programs
This standard is intended to be used in conjunction with standards that apply to community-based organizations. It is not
intended to be used in isolation.
This standard applies to community-based organizations providing medication services. Community-based organizations include those that provide long-term care, community health services, developmental disability services, home care, hospice and palliative care, community mental health services, and rehabilitation.
