Upcoming Event: FDA Webinar on Prescription Drug Shortages, September 30, at 11am ET.

September 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Do you know that in 2010 there were a record number of shortages of prescription drugs, and that in 2011, FDA continues to see an increasing number of shortages, especially those involving older sterile injectable drugs?

As part of FDA Basics, FDA is hosting a webinar where you can learn how the agency helps reduce the impact of drug shortages for patients and our nation’s health care system. Captain Valerie Jensen, R.Ph., Associate Director for FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research’s (CDER’s) Drug Shortage Program, will discuss the extent of the current drug shortage issue and the importance of communication among FDA, drug manufacturers, health professionals, and the public, in helping to reduce its impact on public health.

The free 30 minute webinar will be held Friday, September 30m, at 11 am ET.

There are a limited number of spots available for the webinar. Materials from the webinar will also be made available on the FDA website following the presentation.

Learn more about the webinar, including instructions about how to join the webinar.

    While I personally believe in minimizing the use of medicines a shortage of a needed medicine will be the environment for a crisis. I think the FDA is well suited to monitor and co-ordinate this area.

    You dont need to have to develop your very own item or services, you dont require to manage the orders, you dont need to have to handle the buyer support and transport. In some situations, you dont even need to have to have your personal internet site. The only issue that you must do is market place the retailers goods and/or companies and bring in very good commissions dependent on the done steps.

    I must say, such a shortage sounds pretty scary to me. We must never forget that for some people shortage of some prescription drugs means the difference between life and death. I’m afraid that more and more manufacturers simply choose to produce drugs that bring more money at the moment, instead of supplying the nation with necessary drugs.

    The Senate is preparing to reauthorize the FDA’s all-important user-fee funding. But that’s not all the latest Prescription Drug User Fee Act would do. The FDA would get new powers to police imported.

    That place really does need to be investigated. What if you were to email links to this blog to the local news organizations, attorney general’s office and, as others have suggested, 60 Minutes and 20/20? Include the name of the company for them. You just know there’s something really dastardly going on there. Maybe they’re testing the waters for a new Soylent Green plant or, worse, a subsidiary of Halliburton or BOA.

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your
    presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I believe I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward in your next submit, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
