Confusion over multiple prescriptions and appropriate dosages might sound like a minor nuisance-but it can be dangerous or even fatal. This program explores the challenges that patients often face as they cope with drug interactions. An informative case study features a woman who regularly takes more than 12 medications for various health problems and who, while hospitalized, experienced a drug regimen error that led to cognitive side effects. Guests include Dr. Leslie Brandwin of Erickson Health, who provides essential know-how on properly monitoring drug intake at home and in the hospital, and Anne Burns of the American Pharmacists Association, who discusses the importance of communication between patient, physician, and pharmacist.
