Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.


October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is the time of year to recognize the devastation that interpersonal violence brings upon families and children in our community. Domestic Violence Awareness Month offers a unique opportunity to inform the community about the dynamics of domestic violence and the resources available to help keep the victim safe and secure.


New Name & New Theme! October 2014 marks NCPIE’s 29th Annual “Talk About Your Medicines” Month—Let’s Get In Sync This year, we’ve changed the name from “Talk About Prescriptions” to the new “TALK ABOUT YOUR MEDICINES” Our theme is “LET’S GET IN SYNC” HEART DISEASE… HIGH CHOLESTEROL… DIABETES… HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE… DEPRESSION… ARTHRITIS… CANCER… ASTHMA This October and beyond, NCPIE is partnering with the American Pharmacists Association Foundation on the launch of a comprehensive consumer education campaign encouraging patients and caregivers to explore opportunities to engage with pharmacists providing ongoing medication counseling and medication synchronization (sync) services by making multiple medicine refills available at the same time each month or other designated timeframe. Medication synchronization is achieved by using a new patient care service called the Appointment Based Model (ABM) which is designed to improve patients’ adherence to medications and build efficiencies in pharmacy operations.


What is patient-centered care? A patient is an individual to be cared for, not a medical condition to be treated. Each patient is a unique person, with diverse needs. Each staff member is a caregiver, whose role is to meet the needs of each patient. Our patients are our partners and have knowledge and expertise that is essential to their care. Our patients’ family and friends are also partners; we welcome their involvement. Access to understandable health information is essential to empower patients to participate in their care, and it is our responsibility to provide access to that information. The opportunity to make decisions is essential to the well-being of our patients. It is our responsibility to maximize patients’ opportunities for choices and to respect those choices. Our patients’ well-being can be enhanced by an optimal healing environment, including access to music and the arts, satisfying food and complementary therapies.
