NPS releases "Medicinewise choices" to help Australians be Medicinewise

To help people make the best decisions about their medicines - from what to consider before starting a new medicine to understanding clinical trials - NPS has developed a series of free online learning modules for consumers.

The Medicinewise Choices modules provide information and pointers to help people be actively involved in their treatment decisions. NPS clinical adviser, Dr Danielle Stowasser, says anyone starting a new medicine or who has been taking medicines for a while and wants to know about other options will benefit from the Medicinewise Choices series. A key component of Medicinewise Choices is how to find and assess reliable information sources, particularly online where advice may be driven by commercial interests, out-dated or not supported by evidence.
