NIH Launches TAKING MEDICINES for Seniors

NIH’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences announces the launch of TAKING MEDICINES, part of the NIH SeniorHealth Web site. Developed for an older audience, TAKING MEDICINES features easy-to-understand information on safe medication usage, how new medicines are developed, side effects and drug interactions, managing medicines and the safe use of medicines, personalized medicine, and more. TAKING MEDICINES also features video clips and quizzes presented in a user-friendly format that contains a very limited amount of text on each Web page. The National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE) provided some of the video footage featured in TAKING MEDICINES.
