From the publisher. This book is an invaluable new resource to help Canadians navigate the health care system, especially in relation to medication safety. The authors of the book, 2 of Canada’s most respected health care professionals, provide down-to-earth advice to help all Canadians avoid common pitfalls and achieve the safest health outcomes for their families and for themselves.

In clear and engaging language, Take As Directed provides a firsthand description of the inner workings of the nation’s doctor’s offices, pharmacies, hospitals, and more. This definitive resource outlines the current situation; identifies key safety and efficacy issues; proposes a means for helping patients each step of the way; and offers information on programs, tools, and techniques available to patients. The issues in Take As Directed affect all Canadians, and the book provides answers for all stakeholders in the health care system.
