The National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE) has launched a new and improved bemedwise.org website to help consumers be more informed about the prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications they are taking. Features of the new site include consolidation of information across NCPIE’s health education campaigns into one core site, with actionable tips, checklists, and toolkits for parents, older adults, caregivers, teen influencers, and the general public. It also focuses on promoting responsible medication management and adherence improvement, avoiding side effects and drug interactions, and preventing medication abuse while promoting questions and conversations.
