PROGRAM EDUCATES ON SAFE USE OF OTCs

SEPTEMBER 01, 2006

The FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) has launched an on-line educational program about the safe and effective use of OTC medications. The "Medicines in My Home" interactive Web site includes a "Teachers' Room," featuring a PowerPoint presentation, a pre-and posttest, in-class lesson materials, and activities for use with family members.

The program, in cooperation with the National Council on Patient Information and Education and Maryland's Montgomery County Public Schools, emphasizes the significance of the drug facts label and tells children to ask adults for permission before using a medication. For more information about the program, visit www.fda.gov/cder/medsinmyhome/index.html.
