Prior to their injuries, many brain injury survivors were in good health. As such, these individuals rarely had to devote significant attention to  the taking of  medication. After suffering a brain injury though, survivors are often faced with many new health conditions that require integration of a strict medication schedule into their daily life.

 
Taking medication is more than just “popping a pill.” The difference between proper and improper medication allocation adherence can literally be a life or death matter. The Institute for Safe Medication Practices has a wonderful, short brochure on medication safety that can benefit anyone taking medication. Click on the link below to access the brochure:
