RED FLAGS TRAINING VIDEO FOR PHARMACISTS AVAILABLE AT AWARxE
The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) worked with several industry stakeholders to produce a video to help make pharmacists more aware of certain "red flag" behaviors of patients engaged in drug diversion. If you are a pharmacist, pharmacist intern, or pharmacy technician, please take 10 minutes to watch the video available at http://vimeo.com/95912158 (from www.AWARErx.org under the pharmacists page). All pharmacy personnel need to be vigilant to help curb prescription drug misuse, abuse, and diversion; ultimately, DEA and West Virginia law both state that a pharmacist has a concurrent duty with the prescriber to make sure that prescriptions they fill are valid and legal prescriptions. Interns and technicians spotting issues of potential diversion at the pharmacy should alert the pharmacist on duty to handle the situation. Thank you for viewing the video and keeping focused on this issue.
