The Value of Patient Education

Open and clear communication between patients and their health care providers, patient education, and lower drug costs can help patients more confidently manage and take their medications. A recent survey of 200 patients revealed that more than half of patients are not confident in managing their own drug regimens because they did not receive adequate patient education. When pharmacists explain to patients how to take their medications – for example, on a full or empty stomach, or at certain time intervals – it can increase adherence to therapy and improve drug safety in their patients. Our professional staff is happy to answer your questions about your medications.
