A number of leading national pharmacy groups have introduced a new online medication therapy management (MTM) encyclopedia written and edited by pharmacists for consumers. Patterned after the Web's popular Wikipedia information resource, the new free MTM encyclopedia at offers individuals free access to authoritative pharmaceutical, OTC, and nutraceutical medication information.

RxWiki also is intended to serve as a community network for pharmacists to create and share information for their patients, and for them to collaborate in the advancement of MTM.

"Today, 34% of all US online consumers use Wikipedia, and 7% of US online consumers with medical conditions used peer-edited health information in the past 12 months," said Bruce Roberts, RPh, executive vice president and chief executive officer of the National Community Pharmacists Association-one of the groups that collaborated on the development of the new Web resource. "The mission of RxWiki is to become the Web's most trusted source of medication information."
