    • Overview

      Despite the sustained progress made by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970, the percentage of childhood deaths attributed to medications continues to increase. Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, and Nurses are in a prime position to provide education and awareness through professional advocacy. This session seeks to define the scope of the problem using analytical data collected from poison control centers in the United States. In addition, recommendations for the appropriate response to poisoning emergencies are reviewed and defined within the scope of professional practice.
