Drug labels in Hong Kong are mainly presented in words. Elderly or ethnic minorities might find it difficult to fully understand them. The carers need to spend extra time explaining and handwriting remarks to ensure medication adherence.
We took reference from other places’ prescription labels and designed a set of unified Drug Icons, which can be stuck on the medicine packages to visualise the prescription notes for easier understanding.
