Safe Use of Acetaminophen
Date:5/7/2012

others -- with timely and practical resources and programming ideas to help ensure that college students become "Acetaminophen-Savvy" so they:
  • Know the facts about safe use of medicines that contain acetaminophen.
  • Understand the consequences of potential overdose.
  • Learn about the importance of reading and following dosing directions on the Drug Facts OTC label.
  • Module # 3 -- Acetaminophen Safe Use for Seniors is an online educational module targeting older adults, caregivers and healthcare professionals for self-education and to present the information in their communities (i.e., senior centers, places of worship, libraries, pharmacies, or doctor's offices).  Content was developed with input from a project advisory team with expertise in senior advocacy, outreach, health communications, and safe use of medicines for older adults. The module can be used as a stand-alone program or can be combined with NCPIE's program Medication Use Safety Training (MUST) for Seniors. Core messages, such as questions to ask your healthcare professional, include:
    • Do any of my medicines contain acetaminophen?
    • How much acetaminophen can I safely take?
    • How long can I use acetaminophen safely?
    • Does acetaminophen interact with any medication I currently take?
  • For more information, go to www.talkaboutrx.org/acetaminophen/overview.jsp.

    These programs were developed by NCPIE with support from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNeil-PPC, Inc.
