Medication reconciliation is a widely used strategy to reduce medication adverse events in acute care; however, its use in primary care is less studied. The aims of this study were to identify behaviors indicative of obtaining a best possible medication history, barriers to medication reconciliation, and what improvements could be made. Numerous inconsistencies related to  medication reconciliation were identified (i.e. standardization, knowledge, importance, and inadequate integration).
