Frequently Asked Questions for Pharmacists on Drug Diversion
Q: What resources are available to assist pharmacists in preventing prescription drug abuse and diversion?
A: Pharmacists work hard each and every day to combat prescription drug abuse and diversion. Helpful information and resources for pharmacists may be found at https://nabp.pharmacy/initiatives/awarxe/. The information and resources are not only helpful to pharmacists in their daily practice, but also for community outreach efforts.
The Board also has available a drug diversion pocketcard (click here) that outlines what drug diversion is and what drugs are commonly diverted. It offers potential signs of a forged prescription and instructions on how to report diversion.
