Medication Label Initiative

In this multi-phase initiative, we work with pharmacies and prescribers in Wisconsin to make prescription medication labels easier to understand for patients. Pharmacies across the state have joined the initiative to redesign their medication labels using United States Pharmacopeia (USP) guidelines. We are now in Phase 4 of the initiative, where we work with health systems and prescribers to adopt standardized and clear directions when prescribing medication.
