What do you do when the medication you need to treat a patient simply isn't there?

Drug shortages have become epidemic in recent years, forcing healthcare professionals to seek out alternative therapies. A recent survey1 found that drug shortages can lead to medication errors, adverse reactions, and increased costs.
Join Dr. Beverly Holcombe and Dr. Lisa M. Holle for the webinar "Drug Shortage Strategies: Mitigating Parenteral and Oncology Shortages" on Wednesday, March 5, at 1 p.m. EST. With Dr. Holcombe focusing on parenteral nutrition product shortages and Dr. Holle focusing on oncology drug shortages, the webinar will explore:

■  Current state of shortages
■  Impact on patients
■  Shortage management strategies
