MedSun: Newsletter #93, March 2014

FDA Home Health and Consumer Devices

The FDA collaborated with Kwikpoint under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement to develop free, publically available visual learning guides to help educate people on how to safely dispose of sharps and other needles. The guides are designed to convey directions for proper disposal through images, graphics, and minimal texts. The guides improve understanding, promote greater recall, and deliver universal sharps disposal information.
