    • Overview

      This monograph reviews the case study of Kerns v Hoppe, in which a patient's widow has sued both the prescriber and the pharmacy, alleging that her husband died from an overdose of medications received from the pharmacy. The case study serves as a vehicle for considering the responsibilities of patients to accept the responsibility for the risk of prescription drug abuse. It questions to what degree prescribers and pharmacists can be held liable for intentional misuse of a medication dispensed to a patient, and whether warnings would be effective when a patient is intentionally abusing medication.

      This monograph can be taken as a standalone 1 credit hour home study in law (ACPE accredited) but is also a component of the Pharmacy Regulatory Specialist curriculum. To qualify as a PRS, one must enroll in each of the five (5) live PRS pharmacy law webinars given throughout the year and successfully complete twenty-six (26) one-credit monographs. Once all requirements have been completed, the participant must pass a final comprehensive exam (70% or higher) and pay $199 for the recording and issuing of the Pharmacy Regulatory Specialist Certificate.
