What Is Prescriber's Letter?

With the power of Prescriber's Letter,  your clinical staff will make smarter decisions and have happier patients. When they tap into this vast resource of drug therapy recommendations and the evidence that supports them, they also get:

•PL VOICES, short audio segments that let the learner hear directly from the experts how to make your prescribing top notch.
•Practical answers to questions patients are likely to ask, plus PL Patient Education Handouts (in English and Spanish) written in consumer-friendly language.
•CME credit through four unique, versatile mechanisms: reading the Letter itself; point-of-care CMEs when looking up an answer; by attending live webinars (where DOs can now get AOA Category 1-A credits); and by listening to archived webinars on demand.

What is Natural Medicines Database?

Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database provides prescribing clinicians with evidence-based answers on thousands of natural medicines and alternative therapies.  The Database gives answers on safety, effectiveness, adverse reactions, drug interactions, and more.  It also provides valuable resources including:

•An Interaction Checker for data & severity ratings on potential interactions between alternative therapies & prescription drugs.
• "Stoplight" charts from the Clinical Management Series that show which natural medicines and alternative therapies a clinician may want to stop, proceed with caution, or "go with" based on a patient's clinical history.
• Includes 30+ CE credits for pharmacists, dietitians, physicians, nurse practicioners, and physician assistants.
