Personal Medication Records
Personal Medication Records (PMRs) are excellent tools to help patients keep track of their medications. Use these records as both a discussion piece during consultations and as a tool to empower your patients to learn more about their medications, disease-state and monitor their therapy. Encourage your patients to use the PMR to record their medications and progress, and bring them to all doctor's appointments and pharmacy visits.
Personal Medication Records currently available include: Anticoagulation booklets in English, French, Punjabi and Chinese.
To get copies of the Personal Medication Records, contact your Apotex Sales Representative.
