This paper examined the relationship between implementation of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit's Brown Bag Medication Review process and medication review outcomes in two United States locations. The Brown Bag Medication Review involves requesting that a patient bring in all medications taken in order to review each with his or her provider. Outcomes of note include a three-fold percentage increase in patients bringing medications to office visits and two-fold increase in medication changes given the new review process.
