What nurses can do to protect their patients from counterfeit medications
Nurses are in a unique position to both prevent counterfeit medication use and diagnose the telltale signs of counterfeit drugs in their patients.
With risks to patients coming from direct-retail channels, such as fake online pharmacies, and also from medical clinic suppliers, all medical professionals need to be on their guard to insure their patients receive only certifiably authentic U.S. FDA approved medication.
Promote safety within your practice by distributing the PSM LEADER's Guide to nurses.
Be sure to share with your patients the ways they can protect themselves from counterfeits, and ways to find affordable prescription medications and to save money safey when buying medication online by providing them our consumer handouts:
- "What you don't know about buying drugs from Canada"
- "Save money safely on prescriptions from online pharmacies"
- "SAFE DRUG" (also available in Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese)
- "SAFE SAVINGS" (also available in Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese)
