INITIATIVE TRAINS PHARMACY STAFF ON METHAMPHETAMINE ABUSE

AUGUST 01, 2006

The MethGuard Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005 training program is now available to help pharmacies combat methamphetamine misuse and abuse by the public.

The act mandates that retailers provide training to all employees involved in the sale of OTC products containing pseudoephedrine, ephedrine, or phenylpropanolamine. The retailers also must certify with the Drug Enforcement Agency that training has been completed. Currently, pharmacies are required to enforce daily sales limits on these products. As of September 30, 2006, additional requirements for training, product placement, consumer identification, and logging processes go into effect.

The on-line training program, developed by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Foundation and Learning Something Inc, is flexible to meet the specific training requirements of individual companies. One hour of pharmacy continuing education credit is available to individuals who successfully complete the training. Visit www.nacdsf.learnsomething.com.
