Cardinal Health Foundation, The Ohio State University Launch New Toolkit to Help Reduce Misuse of Prescription Drugs
Date:10/19/2011

DUBLIN, Ohio, Oct. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cardinal Health Foundation and The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy recently released a new, interactive toolkit that pharmacists, health care providers, community organizations and others can use to educate their communities about how to avoid the misuse of prescription drugs. The groups also announced their new partnership with the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) to promote the toolkit among older adults and their caregivers.

"Prescription medications are among the most common types of medical treatment in the United States, with pharmacists dispensing almost 4 billion prescriptions each year," said Jessica Lineberger, senior manager of Community Relations for Cardinal Health. "These medications are helping us live longer and healthier lives; but, if they're not taken appropriately, they have dangerous and deadly consequences, particularly for individuals who take multiple medications."

The newest GenerationRx toolkit is intended to help individuals avoid medication-related problems or 'adverse drug events,' so they can get the best results from their medications. Its focus on preventing prescription drug misuse is a complement to the outreach program's previously released toolkits, which focus on the prevention of prescription drug abuse.

"We know that older adults are 2.5 times more likely to experience an adverse drug event than younger individuals and seven times more likely to be hospitalized for an adverse drug event than younger individuals," said Janice Feinberg, Pharm.D., J.D., research director at the ASCP Foundation. "But researchers estimate that about one-third of all medication-related problems in older adults are preventable, and that's why we're so pleased to partner with the Cardinal Health Foundation and The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy to help raise awareness
