Demonstration medications are used by hospitals for training purposes because they are significantly cheaper than real medications and have a similar look and feel. Currently, there are no standards for warning label elements on demonstration medications and there have been several instances where they have been used by accident in patients. Our research investigates the perception of different warning label elements on the ability to discriminated real versus demonstration medication.
This research was completed in conjunction with the Lab director Evan Palmer and two other team members. This project has been submitted to the 2020 VSS conference.
