Patient Counseling Mandates

Why mandate patient counseling?

When patients are prescribed a medication by their healthcare provider, they deserve to know about important medication safety risks associated with those prescriptions (before buying or consuming). The problem is that, in many states, educating a patient about their prescriptions is an option and not required.

The campaign for patient counseling mandates is about making sure potentially life-saving information is actually communicated from prescribers to patients, per the FDA-approved drug labeling. Find out how you can support this campaign and use #tellpatients to share your views.
