While discussions at the pharmacy are important, it is also critical for doctors to be a part of this conversation to address concerns about potential DDIs.
  • Helping to fill the gaps in education about statin use, the USAGE survey website provides downloadable tools and resources, including patient- and medical provider-directed Discussion Guides, a Medication Tracker and presentation for healthcare providers to educate others in the medical community about the USAGE survey and its findings.
