Drug shortages have placed increased stress upon our health care delivery systems. Clinicians valiantly try to obtain product to
provide continuity of care, but is that product really what you believe it to be? How was it stored? Is the vendor reputable? Is
it safe? These pressures also drive the increasing prevalence of counterfeit drug products within the supply chain. This video
presentation will shed light on drug shortages and the grey market, giving the viewer the knowledge and ammunition required to
effectively anticipate and manage drug shortages and keep counterfeit drugs from reaching our patients.
