Wisconsin Health Literacy Medication Label Initiative


Wisconsin Health Literacy is working with doctors to adopt evidence-based Universal Medication Schedules when prescribing medications.  The Universal Medication Schedule tells patients how many pills to take at a specified time of day (Morning, Noon, Evening, Bedtime). 

 Morning 6a-9p with rising sun, Noon 11a-1p with full sun, Evening 4p-8p with a moon, Bedime 9p-11p with a bed 

This is the fourth phase of their Medication Label Initiative.  Previous phases created and implemented new medication label standards in partnership with five pharmacy organizations in Wisconsin utilizing USP guidelines to make medication labels easier to read.
