All healthcare professionals have a unique dual role in protecting patients. On one hand, they have the opportunity to spot therapeutic failure and talk to patients about how they fill their prescriptions. If patients themselves break the supply chain without realizing the risks, a healthcare professional can demonstrate the importance of buying medications from safe sources.
Additionally, healthcare professionals often source medications for patients. It’s not just pharmacists who need to know about safe sourcing, the recent Avastin incident teaches us that physicians need safe sourcing education too.
