Detailed report on physician counseling about prescriptions issued by AMA

“Physician Education of their Patient About Prescription Medicines,” adopted by the American Medical Association House of Delegates in late 1998, recently became accessible in full on the AMA website. The report, issued by the AMA Council on Scientific Affairs, includes a recommendation that state and specialty medical societies join NCPIE to “foster better medication use through improved communication between physicians and their patients.”
