Data collected from more than 57,500 students who completed the Prescription Drug Safety curriculum in the 2017-18 academic year shows that the course positively impacted students’ knowledge, attitudes and behaviors regarding prescription drug safety. Highlights include:
– 49% increase in student assessment scores after completing the program
– 25% increase in students’ confidence in their personal refusal skills
– 35% increase in students who agree that sharing their prescriptions could cause harm
As we embark on the new academic year, we thank our partners and participating educators for working together to bring this meaningful impact to communities across the US.
