A new educational, online resource for drug, health, and nutrition information can help your patients and their caregivers make better-informed decisions about their health care and lifestyle choices.

Patient Advisor (www.MPRPatientAdvisor.com) is a collaboration of Monthly Prescribing Reference (MPR, published by Haymarket Media) and AnswersMedia, LLC. The website integrates MPR’s authoritative drug database for health care practitioners with in-depth educational videos and articles covering disease states, issues of daily living, nutrition matters, and health care regulations.

Users also have access to tools including but not limited to calculators that compute cigarette costs, BMI, calorie-burning, and 10-year risks for heart attack and stroke; a medical dictionary; weight and exercise trackers; and clinical charts that provide comparative information on, for example, various smoking-cessation therapies.
