Abstract

Patient education about medications Health consumers increasingly want access to accurate, evidence-based information about their health condition and its treatment. There is evidence, however, that current educational methods are not meeting their needs. Studies have shown a mismatch between health professionals and health consumers views about the amount and type of information patients should receive about their medications (Berry 1997; Nair 2002). These groups also appear to have different priorities relating to the purpose of medication education (Grime 2007). Health consumers generally want more information than is provided to facilitate informed decision making, presented in a way that is easy to understand, whereas health professionals focus upon the need to improve medication compliance, save consultation time and establish medico-legal evidence of informed consent
