    Out of Stock: COVID-19 Impact on Pharmacy Inventory
    Out of Stock: COVID-19 Impact on Pharmacy Inventory
    Live Course for Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, and Nurses
    Worth 1 Contact Hour

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, a main concern continues to be the pharmaceutical supply chain. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians receive many questions surrounding drug shortages because of the impact of the pandemic on drug reserves. These questions include the point of origin of medications, if supply will be uninterrupted, and how to maintain availability of life sustaining medications. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have varied experience handling drug shortages and even those who are seasoned with this type of issue may not be aware of how ongoing issues with resources from one country may affect the global supply. This program will provide an overview of potential patient harm due to drug shortages, delve into the specific issues with interruptions in the supply chain due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and identify mitigation processes for drug shortages specific to a pandemic.
     

    Embarrassed to Cough in Public - Understanding Chronic Cough Amid COVID-19

    Embarrassed to Cough in Public - Understanding Chronic Cough Amid COVID-19

    Live Course for Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, and Nurses
    Worth 1 Contact Hour

    The already cumbersome burden and social limitations associated with chronic cough have been amplified during COVID-19. The heightened awareness of and concern associated with cough has made any errand or public appearance more difficult for those with chronic cough. Now, more than ever, patients with chronic cough are seeking effective treatments to minimize symptoms and improve quality of life. Current treatment strategies for cough fall short of meeting the needs of all patients with cough, particularly those patients who experience refractory or unexplained cough, so this is an area of unmet need. This educational session will summarize the current treatment landscape for chronic cough, as well as highlight the ways that current management falls short of meeting the needs of all patients. The purpose of this session is to equip pharmacists and nurses to provide appropriate counseling and treatment recommendations for patients with chronic cough. It is critical that healthcare providers understand not only the mechanism of chronic cough and current treatments, but also the receptors involved and their relationship to the rationale of new pipeline agents in development. Pharmacists and nurses will leave this session better able to care for and meet the needs of patients who suffer from this frustrating and stigmatizing condition.
