The Pharmacist's Role in Emergency Preparedness
Please log in to view this video online.

Since 9/11 and the anthrax attacks of autumn 2001, America has mobilized as never before in order to be ready for future bioterror, chemical and nuclear attacks. Pharmacists have played a vital role in this new preparedness.

In this video, pharmacists who responded to both the 9/11 and anthrax incidents explain the lessons learned from those attacks. Other experts on the appropriate medical response to weapons of mass distruction provide updates on what is being done by the federal government to prepare for future attacks, and what hospital pharmacists can do to participate in achieving a state of ongoing readiness.

Most of all, this program is a call to action, informing parmacists of the key roles they can play in emergency preparedness within our own hospitals, in their communities, and on the National Pharmacists Response Team.
