Consumers and patients need information about their medications that is accurate, balanced and delivered in an easily understood format. Unfortunately, recent studies have shown that current systems for delivering prescriptions to consumers consistently fail to fulfill the need for pertinent details.
On October 12, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings hosted a public forum to discuss strategies for ensuring that patients have access to effective patient medication information (PMI). Through a series of panel discussions, key stakeholders explored patients’ expectations for this information and how they access the details and warnings, along with feasible solutions for delivering higher-quality information to patients.
After each panel, speakers took audience questions.
