Pharmacy Week is also a time to renew your commitment to ensuring that consumers know how to take their medicines safely.

ASHP’s new infographic, “5 Questions You Should Ask Your Pharmacist,” is an excellent tool to educate your patients and their families about how to stay safe as they take prescription and over-the-counter medicines.
