Looking Beyond Red Flags
The presentation will look beyond red flags to inform Rx legitimacy judgments and subsequent prescribing and dispensing decisions. The presenter will describe the outcomes of two research projects that examined prescribers’ and pharmacists’ perceptions of Rx legitimacy and Rx drug abuse communication behaviors. Attendees will gain insight into the process of evaluating Rx legitimacy and learn how subjectivity inherent in these judgments influences prescribing and dispensing behaviors and patient care. The presenter also will identify evidencebased, practice-friendly interventions to engage community pharmacists in community-based prevention of Rx drug abuse and its consequences.
