    • Overview

      Why does it seem that regulators focus solely on pharmacists when drug regulations are enforced? Why do so many nitpicky rules mandate or prohibit specific activities by pharmacists? How can regulators be shown that advances in pharmacy are impeded by outdated regulations? This introductory class will address these challenging questions. It will explain the foundation of legal requirements for pharmacists and pharmacies. It will describe how regulators think and work, and how pharmacists can adapt to the difficulties of working within a highly regulated environment. Using the fundamentals learned in this foundational class, a thorough knowledge of regulatory compliance can be built through further study of specific areas in which pharmacists are given the responsibility to interpret and follow legal mandates.

       

      This webinar can be taken as a standalone home study 1 credit hour 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 or home study 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.
