Drug Safety

Drug Safety

Many times, older adults take many prescription medications and see several types of doctors. This increases risks of complications and harm.

To avoid medication mistakes, it is important for you to:

  • Keep a list of your medications and share it with your doctors
  • Take your medications as recommended
  • Talk to your pharmacist
  • Ask questions
  • Use resources and medication management tools

Great Plains QIN is partnering with healthcare providers in our region to develop ways to avoid medication safety issues. We are also working to provide education and tools to help individuals better manage and communicate the medications prescribed. We hope, through these efforts, individuals will have better health outcomes and avoid unnecessary medical care.

If you want to be more connected and have accesses to resources, education and information on medication safety  and other related topics, join the Great Plains Learning and Action Network. We welcome your participation. Join today.
