After years of selling the ManageMed Screening (MMS) on-line at our cost, we are now able to offer the materials you will need to make your own standardized kit. Please take the time to set up the kit exactly as described. The disclaimer is on page 2 of the manual. By using the manual and the MMS, you are agreeing to abide by the conditions in the disclaimer.
We share the manual, labels, and prescription sheets at no cost to you. You will need to purchase a few items. It is our hope that you will use the MMS, and that you will find it helpful in determining if your client can manage a moderately difficult medication routine. We only ask that you take great care to ensure that the kit is made to the exact specifications, which is necessary for maintaining a standardized testing procedure.
Please do not use this “kit” for intervention purposes. Use it only for assessment. If you want to work on client-specific medication management, consider using the client’s own prescriptions. The MMS can establish basic baseline and discharge performance. As stated in the manual, the MMS is a test of capacity, not motivation. The questions at the end of the manual may of assistance in establishing the client’s level of motivation.
All assessment tools should be subject to research on a regular basis to ensure adequate validity and reliability. If you, your facility, your school, or your students wish to use the MMS in research I would like to hear from you, and I may even be able to be of assistance. Comments and questions are welcome.
