Help improve medication adherence through patient knowledge

Patient education is a critical component of effective patient care. Studies show the impact on quality of patients’ lives when they don’t adhere to recommended treatments.1 Every care team member, from nurses to pharmacists to physicians, bears the responsibility for educating patients on the importance of their medication therapies and necessity of adherence. And that’s where we come in.

Medi-Span offers a variety of patient education resources your organization can use across the care continuum to help patients adhere to their medications.
