The medication management model needs some adjustments and modifications. As we saw that the system is not perfect and research shows that unintended consequences occur in the system.
Transmission phase, is the second phase of the medication management process. The transmission phase could also include the dispensing phase.
Medication management process consists of five stages; prescribing, transmitting or transcribing, dispensing, administration and monitoring. I believe unintended consequences could occur anywhere in the process at any phase. However, after looking into the literature, I would agree that the most common phases where unintended consequences occur are prescribing, dispensing and administration.
