Safe medication use
Seven of Canada’s leading health care organizations have joined together to launch electronic tools to help Canadians use their medications safely and appropriately. They include a free iPhone and iPad app, MyMedRec, and a website that have been developed by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices Canada with input from Canadian patient groups and health care provider organizations. Pharmacists can review and share this tool with patients.
