Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a patient-centric and comprehensive approach to improve medication use, reduce the risk of adverse events, and improve medication adherence. A new tool in the AHRQ Pharmacy Health Literacy Center – Health Literacy Tools for Providers of Medication Therapy Management – identifies health literacy tools that can improve communication with MTM beneficiaries and other pharmacy patients.
A complete list of AHRQ’s health literacy resources is also available.

Collaborative work in the Library's group study rooms just got easier.
We now have 2 smart boards that can be used in the group study rooms. Reserve one online and borrow it from the Circulation Desk.
To use, download the free SMART Kapp app (available for IOS & Android devices). Use a dry-erase marker to write on the screen. Anything you write will also appear in the app. Use the camera icon on the smart board or in the app to take snapshots of the white board screen. If members of your team are participating in your meeting remotely, invite them to join your SMART Kapp session.
For more information, see our Smart Boards guide http://libguides.einstein.yu.edu/smartboards
