Abstract

The core instructional objective was a behavior change: Clinicians must ask patients about HDS use when taking a medical history and document this use in the medical record. HDS use is prevalent among Americans and sales are increasing. When taken in conjunction with prescription medications, HDS-drug interactions are common and may result in unexpected and serious patient harm. Patient’s failure to report HDS use to their medical provider, and a provider’s failure to ask specifically about HDS use, further complicate the picture.
