This site was a collaborative effort of several groups at the University of Michigan. It is primarily a project of the U-M chapter of the American Pharmaceutical Association Academy of Students of Pharmacy, as part of their community service. Other groups and their roles are detailed below.
APhA Academy of Students of Pharmacy (U-M Chapter)
Pharmacy students generated the original idea for the site as an extension of their annual Poison Prevention Week demonstrations in local elementary schools. In order to extend pharmaceutical care practice to a larger audience, ASP members provided the content for the site, as well as the evaluation.
Education graduate students researched, specified, and created the initial design for web pages you are looking at right now. Their work was invaluable in making sure this project was useful for its target audience, and they truly did the lion's share of the work.
The IPL agreed to host and maintain the Poison Prevention web site on their servers, as well as promote it to the educational community. Their technical and design assistance played a major role in the way the site design evolved over time.
We have tested this site design with Netscape Navigator (final versions 2 and 3) and Internet Explorer (final versions 2 and 3) for both Macintosh and Windows platforms. Other browsers were not tested, so if you encounter any problems while viewing this site, please let us know.
