New Drug Update

Sunday, February 7, 2021 - 8:15-9:15 am
 
New medications are approved every year. Providers and patients ask questions about these new medications, especially with the influence of direct manufacturer-to-consumer advertising. Keeping up with this information is challenging given the busy nature of our practice sites. It is important pharmacists have adequate knowledge of new medications in order to properly dispense them and educate patients and providers for their safe and effective use.
