SOS Rx Campaign Launched by National Consumers League

Appropriate use of medicines, particularly by seniors, is the mission of a new coalition launched by the National Consumers League, whose President, Linda Golodner, serves as NCPIE’s Chair. “SOS (Senior outpatient safety) Rx” was launched to specifically (1) address safe use of the blood-thinner warfarin, (2) develop a universal patient medication record, (3) develop standards for electronic prescribing, and (4) build an on-line clearinghouse of safe medicine practices. NCPIE and many NCPIE members are participating in SOS Rx.
