If you’ve ever tried to read the literature that comes with your prescription meds, you might have needed to double up on your meds to get through it. Kroger Health gets that and has innovated on an idea.
In an effort to make prescription drug use safer and easier to understand, Kroger Health has published a fantastic online course designed to help people understand opioids. We hope they expand it to include other types of medications.
The interactive opioid course is clear, easy to navigate and uses a flashcard metaphor to educate customers about the proper uses—and misuses—of prescription opioids. Five-minute lessons are also available on topics like basic opioid facts, how to read a prescription bottle label, how to understand warnings, drug interactions, side effects, how to store medicine properly, and using prescriptions responsibly. The service is free and available to anyone.
