On April 20, the Engelberg Center convened an expert workshop to discuss prescribing information for health care professionals.

This workshop brought together a diverse set of stakeholders who discussed the following issues:

  • How the prescribing information (PI) is currently accessed and utilized;
  • If the current PI format is meeting the needs of prescribers and other health care professionals and if all PIs should be standardized in this format;
  • How PIs could be encouraged as the primary resource for prescription drug information; and
  • The content that is most useful for prescribers and other health care providers in the Patient Counseling Information (PCI) section of the PI.
