Patients usually cannotparticipate medical decision making due to limited pharmaceutical information about their treatments. Traditional methods of getting this information is imperfect. Health Canada Drug Product Database (DPD) provides a new option. The idea is to perfect current web-based DPD and to fully promote DPD use in general public in order to increase the access to medication information,reduce the dependence to health care system, and decrease the risk of irrational drug use.
