Extensive medication lists are a problem everywhere throughout the United States. As a rural state that has a rapidly aging population, these lists will continue to grow and the added aspect of lack of access to services (whether via the internet or transportation) makes managing these medication lists harder for Maine’s population. The perspectives of patients at the CMMC Family Medicine Clinic were obtained through an anonymous survey, and two interviews with community members were conducted to identify specific issues. The feedback and responses from both of these methods were incorporated into an informational pamphlet that was distributed within the clinic to promote knowledge and awareness. Increased knowledge and awareness of available services and personal practices that can improve medication management were the results of this project.
