The FDA periodically releases documents in print and on its website that are geared toward healthcare professionals. New drugs, medical devices, safety notifications and product recalls: all are meant to help healthcare professionals protect patients. But channeling information through only the print medium may miss a large segment of an increasingly tech-savvy audience. How, then, does the FDA attract the more visual learners among us? The answer: a television and satellite broadcast show called FDA Patient Safety News. Host Dr. Charles Turck speaks with FDA PSN co-anchors Mark Barnett and Anita Rayner about how their broadcast show helps healthcare professionals protect patients when using medical products.
