INPE is in the process of creating a number of practical tools for NPs and NP students.  These will include patient education material, as well as practical clinical and professional development resources.  Please check back often to see what has been added.

 

MEDICATION ADHERENCE

Our first set of resources addresseses the critical problem of medication adherence.  The toolkit includes a printable 2-page handout that you can use to educate your patients about the importance of taking their medications regularly and to help stimulate open discussions about any issues they are having in taking medications as prescribed.  We have also provided links to external sources where you will learn more about how to assess your patients' level of adherence and apply individualized strategies to assist them.  This content is designed to further support a new INPE CE program on the topic of medication adherence.  To access our toolkit on Medication Adherence, please select the link on the left-hand menu.  You will be asked to register with the site, so that we are able to identify our users.  Access the online CE Center through the Online Continuing Education menu on upper left.
