Prescription opioids: Guide to safe use

A current problem within the current hospital and clinic setting is that patients are getting prescribed medications based on a single model with little flexibility; which leads to overprescription in many cases. Additionally, there is evidence that some patients do not have adequate knowledge of the medications they are prescribed and the side effects of using them more often than needed. The goal of the information design is to give patients a better knowledge on pain medication use.

Information Design

In order to tactfully bring awareness to this problem, the information pamphlet and iPad publication creates an easy to follow storyline through delivering important sections of information with illustrations to educate those who will be prescribed the medication following various procedures.
