Pharmacy Strategies to Deal with Medication Recalls and Shortages

Bellevue, Wash. – Wolters Kluwer Health announced today that Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Amplifi, a formulary management system, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Denise Fields, PharmD, in "Medication Stock Challenges: What's a Pharmacy To Do?"

Current medication recalls and shortages have caused practitioners to have to think about the "best drug available" rather than the "best drug to treat the disease." Medication stock shortages present significant risk to patients, as substitutions can lead to error and misuse. Fields will share strategies and communication tools used at Decatur County Memorial Hospital.

DATE: Wednesday, May 11, 2011
TIME: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
