A Culture of Health by Mind Map: A Culture of Health

1. Education

1.1. Health Advocates: Public places such as doctors offices, supermarkets, and even college campuses should keep pamphlets on drug safety in easy access locations for people to take and read for themselves.

1.2. Health Courses: More informative, yet basic, material on drugs should be implemented into high school health classes so they can learn what drugs really do, how they work, how to spot addiction within themselves and others, and where to get help.

2. Safe Medication Practices

2.1. Prescribing Control: Physicians should try to put more restrictions and regulations on strong pain medications and understand when it is appropriate to prescribe opiates or not.

2.2. Adherence: patient's need to be more informed about why it's necessary to properly adhere to their medications.

2.3. Sharing Medication: in order to decrease our poor medication behaviors, we must understand the importance of not sharing medication and that we may be doing more harm than good.

3. Trust

3.1. Physician, Pharmacist, Self: Trust needs to be established between these three individuals in order for a good relationship to come about.

3.2. Family: Trust between immediate family members should also be established to build a strong foundation and to help with medication adherence.

4. Common Ground

4.1. Database: The various healthcare providers we have (i.e. family doctors, dentist, eye doctor, etc.) should have a common database to keep our information on, making communication easier between one another.

4.2. Updates: Frequent updates between patient and physician would be beneficial to make sure everyone is on the same page at all times and to ask or answer questions that might come about.
