    • Overview

      This webcast addresses the inherently dangerous aspects of all pharmaceuticals. The reality that no pharmaceutical product can be made completely safe is discussed. Liability for harm caused by dangerous drugs is reviewed. Case studies are utilized to demonstrate how safe and effective drugs can be used unsafely and/or ineffectively, and the responsibility of pharmacists to provide pharmaceutical care services that promote safe and effective use of safe and effective medications.
