Medication Problem Solving with Medtables

When patients are encouraged to keep track of their progress with the use of tables, diaries and monitors, healthy steps are much easier to take. This has proved successful in cases of weight management, psychotherapy, and more recently with the "medtable" for geriatric patients on complex medication regimens. "Medtables" provide a means of problem solving for an otherwise overwhelming collection of information, thereby increasing adherence and improving outcomes.
