Generation Rx is a nation-wide educational initiative to promote safe medication practices in an effort to prevent the misuse of prescription drugs. The program provides discussion and activities to address safe medication practices for older adults. Generation Rx is offered through a partnership between the Cardinal Health Foundation and The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy.
Did you know that the misuse of prescription medications is one of our country’s most pressing public health problems, with adverse drug events being a significant issue for older adults? It’s true that prescription medications can help us live longer and healthier lives, but any medication has the potential to do harm—especially when misused. This educational programming addresses simple ways to decrease the risk for adverse drug events, safe storage and disposal of medications, and prescription drug misuse in our country. There will be time for questions.
Presenter: Dr. Roseanne Scammahorn, Family and Consumer Sciences Educator for Ohio State University Extension.
