This review describes how researchers identified and analyzed systematic reviews on interventions to augment safe medication use. The authors provide an overview of safety improvement strategies, such as reminders and financial incentives. Medication self-management programs generally enhanced medication safety and health outcomes, but more research is needed for clinically complex populations and technology-enabled strategies.
