Comments Requested on Draft Standards for Written Medicine Information

Detailed draft standards for both format and content of written information have been developed by USP (U.S. Pharmacopeia). They are based on the “Action Plan for the Provision of Useful Prescription Medicine Information,” developed by NCPIE coalition members and other organizations in late 1996; and on USP-commissioned research to assess USP’s own patient information leaflets. Comments are due at USP by 11 August 2000.
