Medication Mishaps - Virtual

A FREE presentation sponsored by the Ascension Providence Injury Prevention Program

Nearly half of poisonings in seniors involve medication errors and 41% of ALL poison related deaths occur in people 65 and older.

Hear from a Trauma Nurse ways to prevent common medication errors and what you should be talking to your doctor about. Also learn the difference between tolerance, dependence, and abuse.

Participants will also receive a Medication Safety Goodie Packet, mailed to their home, for completing a survey after the presentation filled with a medication lock-up pouch with lock, medication write-in schedules, refrigerator magnet, pen, medication safety resources discussed in the presentation, and more!
