Education Services

Overview

Pharmacy Education

Helping you achieve your best health starts with education. Aurora Pharmacy offers education to help you better understand your prescriptions.

For people receiving organ transplants and those living with diabetes, our pharmacists provide education about their condition and new medication regimens. Also, we provide one-on-one consultations for people with opioid prescriptions to reduce the likelihood of addiction. We’re here to answer any questions you have, any time.

Transplant Education

Your New Medication Regimen After Organ Transplant

Organ transplant is more than just a surgery. It’s a lifelong commitment to caring for your new organ. Part of that care includes daily medications to prevent organ rejection and other complications.

We know it can be overwhelming to learn about all the medications you’ll take after an organ transplant. Before you leave the hospital, our pharmacists go over the details of your prescriptions with you, including dosage, potential side effects, payment options and more. Once you’re home, you can call us anytime with questions or concerns about your prescriptions.

Diabetes Education

Diabetic Education Helps Keep Blood Sugar in Check

Many people living with diabetes give themselves insulin injections throughout the day. If you have diabetes, you may have questions about how to safely do these injections and manage your health.

Your pharmacist has special training to teach you how to use your diabetic needles and monitor your blood sugar levels throughout the day. Simply visit your preferred Aurora Pharmacy location for a one-on-one consultation with your pharmacist.

Safe and Effective Pain Management

Helping to Prevent Prescription Drug Abuse

Opioid medications provide pain relief for a wide range of conditions. At Aurora, we believe opioid education is the key to preventing addiction to these medications.

At each Aurora Pharmacy location, our pharmacists are available for one-on-one consultations to discuss your opioid prescription and chronic pain management. We help you lower your addiction risk by learning how to properly take your medication.

To help keep you safe, every Aurora Pharmacy location can provide anti-opioid medications, such as naloxone (also known as Narcan or Evzio), to you or a family member. It’s important to keep this medication on hand.

For those struggling with opioid dependency, we offer help through Aurora’s Opiate Recovery Program. Our pharmacists work with your health care team to help you break the cycle of addiction and regain control of your life.

Health Management Tools

Helping You Manage Your Health at Home

Depending on your medication needs, Aurora offers medication (pill) boxes and other educational materials to help you manage your health. Simply ask one of our pharmacists about these resources at your next pharmacy visit.
