Over the Top with OTC? Guiding Patients Through Self-Treatment

Description

Patients often take their medical care into their own hands with over-the-counter (OTC) medications. However, they need guidance to determine whether self-care is the best option—and when it is, to make wise product selections and use the products safely. This session will relate product information and recent literature on OTCs and self-care to real-life scenarios that you can apply to your practice.
