P.A. Pharmacists Celebrating American Pharmacists Month
The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association, in celebration of American Pharmacists Month, is continuing its series of information on the challenges and solutions to controlling pharmacy and health care costs. This second in the series explores the waste and related issues that frequently occurs when patients are forced to use mail order pharmacies.“Mail order medications actually can contribute to increased medication waste and higher costs,” said Rob Frankil, PPA President. The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) has compiled many specific examples of mail order pharmacy waste which were sent in by participating pharmacies in the Dispose My Meds Program.
