Medication Commercial (50 points)

Instructions: Each student will prepare a short 5-minute pharmacology commercial; this could be a recorded commercial, a PowerPoint presentation (see the first bullet point under “Ability to clearly articulate information” in the rubric below), or you can use some other form of technology. Be creative for this commercial! When developing your commercial, ask yourself what information is important to highlight about the featured medication. Think about different medication commercials that grabbed your attention—what was it about those commercials that got you interested? Medication commercials we see on TV are geared toward the patient- your information should be presented in a way your patient can understand. Ensure you include all required information – follow the rubric on the next page.

· Your commercial needs to be uploaded into the D2L drop box by the due date.

· Each student is required to comment on at least two other commercials after the presentation.
