Why Is It So Hard to Take Care of Ourselves?


Simple Steps to Help Consumers Take Their Medicines

Evidence shows that one of the three keys to avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations is taking medications per the doctor’s order. However, many of us fail to follow the prescription regimen and doctor’s advice. Consistency in taking medications is a problem for all of us and is particularly compounded for those with complex medical and behavioral conditions.

The National Council on Behavioral Health recently released its white paper on best practices for care providers in supporting consumers with medication adherence. Watch this webinar to hear Joe Parks, MD, National Council Medical Director, and Chris Reist, MD, Relias Population Health Medical Advisor and contributor to the National Council white paper discuss how care providers can get better in supporting consumer self-care and, specifically, medication adherence.
