Research by the National Alliance for Hispanic Health (NAHH) found that more than half of Hispanic consumers are not aware of the health risks associated with taking too much acetaminophen, and do not check medicine labels to see if their medicine contains acetaminophen.
NAHH and the Acetaminophen Awareness Coalition's Know Your Dose Campaign have joined together to launch new web-based resources and educational materials in Spanish about safe acetaminophen use.
Visit Know Your Dose to order free, patient educational materials in English and Spanish. The site includes a Spanish-language section with a medicine-label reader guide, answers to frequently asked questions and an animated video on safe use of medicines containing acetaminophen, produced by the NAHH.
Patients can call the toll-free Su Familia Helpline at 1-866-783-2645 for answers to questions about safe acetaminophen use and referrals to health resources in their communities.
