    • Overview

      This webcast explores the potential malpractice liability exposure of pharmacists and pharmacies when pharmacy technicians make errors early in the prescription assembly process that are not detected later in the process.  Legal case studies are used to illustrate the extent of this potential malpractice-liability-causing problem.  Suggestions are offered for steps that can be taken to reduce malpractice liability exposure based on pharmacy technician errors that are not detected and rectified.
