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 How can regulators be shown that advances in pharmacy are impeded by outdated regulations?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.
