The Counselling Messages Module is a set of brief prioritised counselling messages to assist the healthcare provider in counselling the patient, with a corresponding set for the professional. It serves as both a reminder and a reliable reference resource for healthcare professionals with only the most important information highlighted.
The Indications Module can be used by clinicians as a tool for assessing the appropriateness of a particular course of drug therapy given to a specific medical condition. This module may help clinicians make informed decisions regarding a choice of medications that are known to be appropriate for a patient's condition. The module covers both labeled and unlabeled indications.
The Lactation Precautions Module creates warnings about the use of drugs by nursing mothers and assists the healthcare professional in making informed decisions about altering a patient's drug therapy when potential problems exist. The module includes information on whether the drug is passed into the breast milk and the potential for harm to the infant.
The Paediatric Precautions Module recognises that paediatric patients can be very sensitive to drug therapy, especially within specific age ranges. This module provides clinicians with valuable information for minimising adverse effects and provides the ability to generate brief messages should problems exist.
The Patient Education Module provides an extensive collection of monographs in consumer language. Covering thousands of packaged products including all of the most commonly dispensed drugs, the content encompasses important information a patient needs to know about a drug. The module may be used to assist healthcare providers in counselling their patients, and includes information on the benefits of a drug and may serve to boost patient compliance. Alternative therapy monographs (herbals and nutraceuticals) are also featured.
The Pregnancy Precautions Module enables the healthcare professional to recognise drug therapy that may not be appropriate for pregnant women. It provides information about contraindications, precautions and the potential safety of a drug, including specific trimester information.
The Prioritised Label Warnings Module provides auxiliary labels and sets label priorities for a particular drug product based on the relative clinical importance of the message. These label warnings enable healthcare professionals to provide patients with the most relevant drug warning information first.
