Activity Outline

Description: This series of educational webinars is designed to aid physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, certified public health professionals, other health care professionals, and students, to provide better patient care by knowing how to find relevant FDA regulatory information that will improve drug safety. This webinar will provide updates on implementation of supply chain security requirements under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act and describe requirements that go into effect in 2023 for enhanced drug distribution security. Enhanced product tracing and verification will help protect patients by improving detection and response to suspect and illegitimate products and prevent the distribution of illegitimate products in the U.S. FDA and the supply chain will need to work together to establish a fully electronic, interoperable system for enhanced drug distribution security across the entire drug supply chain.
