Reasons for Establishing Correct Medication Educational Resource Center

In view of the promotion for correct medication health policy, the Department of Health, Executive Yuan established correct medication educational resource centers in northern, central, southern and eastern Taiwan in May, 2008. These centers organize training for seedling faculty, provide correct medication resources, and carry out correct medication instructional activities in order to assist the local health agencies or campuses with the promotion of correct medication educational activities.

  2. CMUH integrates its Pharmacy Department with Health and Life Learning Center, the pharmacies within the medical institutions of the system, social services office and public relation rooms. In 2011, CMUH was commissioned by the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health of Executive Yuan to establish the “Correct Medication Educational Resource Center” in attempt to train medication educational volunteers and medication educational seedling pharmacists to guide the public with enhanced knowledge in correct medication through the establishment of the center.
