These classes are intended to provide information, suggestions and practical solutions to the most common problems associated with medication use.
While these classes are not a replacement for seeing your personal doctor* and pharmacist who know you, your loved one and their health history, they will provide you with strategies that can improve communication between you and your healthcare providers and make you a better caregiver.
