    • Overview

      Thousands of metric tons of pharmaceutical waste are produced annually, but where does it all go? The associated environmental, economic, and public health concerns continue to mount global interest. Currently, state and federal regulations classify pharmaceutical waste and define proper disposal/destruction, and drug companies and health care institutions are putting more effort into developing waste reduction methods. Recommendations for disposing or returning unwanted medications are available to the public, but awareness is often limited. In this webinar, we will explore this issue as it pertains to the pharmaceutical industry, health care institutions, pharmacies, and patients.
