Abstract

The data demonstrate that the transition from inpatient to outpatient care is a sensitive interface. The data do not allow quantitative estimation of the magnitude of this phenomenon. In this study, the reasons for the modification of the drug demonstrated that these findings could be the basis for further studies or the development of interventions for preventing unwanted medication changes.
