BEING MEDICINEWISE is being better informed about your health conditions. Being informed helps you make better health decisions - decisions that allow you to safely, and wisely, manage your health and the tests and medicines you use. Being medicinewise can also put you in a position to help those around you understand and manage their health and wellbeing.

BE INVOLVED! Take charge of your health and medicines with the help of your health professionals and trusted, reliable information; and don’t be afraid to take charge of your medicines and medical tests by asking questions. 'Be Medicinewise Week' raises awareness of the following five questions to help people take charge of their medicines and better manage their medicines:
- What is the medicine for?
- What is the active ingredient?
- How do I take or use this medicine correctly?
- What are the possible side effects and what can I do about them?
- What should or shouldn’t I do while taking this medicine?

#FridayFood4Thought The health benefits of eating fresh vegetables are endless! They are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C etc. etc. But what about growing them...? People of all ages can enjoy gardening, but it can be especially beneficial to children who can learn new skills, have fun, play and develop self-confidence by spending time in the garden tending plants and growing their own food. Most children enjoy being outdoors and love digging about in soil, getting dirty and creating things. Spring is one of the busiest times of the year in the garden and a great time for the planting of a whole range of vegetables that don't cope with Winter frosts; like tomatoes, capsicum, and cucumber. Grab your kids, grandkids or nieces and nephews this weekend and start planning your Spring garden! Visit tinyurl.com/glarf99 to learn more about gardening with children and tinyurl.com/z48858o for planting advice and other gardening information. ENJOY! #yourhealthourcommitment #since1975 #getactivegetgardening #welovevegetables #springgardening ... See MoreSee Less
