About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens receiving home care services from the Extra-Mural Program who reported that someone from the program asked to see all the medications they were taking.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Home Care Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "yes" by the number of respondents who answered "yes or no" to the question: Did someone from the program ask to see all the prescription and over-the-counter medicines you were taking?

Notes

The 2021 edition of the Home Care Survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, users are advised to use the survey data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other editions of the survey.
