Pharmacy Supply Chain

November 4, 2020

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are generally not provided education on the operational aspect of pharmacy such as pharmacy supply chain. Many pharmacists and technicians may not understand how pharmacies acquire medications. It would be beneficial for pharmacists and technicians to understand how pharmacy supply chain works. Disturbances in pharmacy supply chain can also lead to drug shortages, which have negative impact on patients and healthcare organizations. If healthcare workers can understand the relationship between supply chain and drug shortages, they can work to create solutions to ensure that patient care is not compromised due to drug shortages.
