NEW! Pharmaceutical Diversion: Current Trends and Reporting Activity
August 25, 2021
7:00 pm - 7:45 pm (CT)

Join us for an online training with the Nebraska State Patrol in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration, hosted by the Nebraska Pharmacists Association, to discuss current trends seen across the Midwest involving individuals and criminal organizations. This discussion will provide insight on tactics, techniques, and behaviors commonly seen by law enforcement, and provide attendees with the information needed for detecting fraudulent activity in the business place. Also, a discussion will provide options available to healthcare professionals to report fraudulent activity via several methods to the Nebraska State Patrol for law enforcement assistance. As part of this training, there will be an overview of the services available from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Tactical Diversion Unit. The training will close with a question and answer session with the law enforcement panel to allow attendees time for relevant questions. Registration for this free training closes on August 24, 2021.
  Do you have issues about your pharmacy workplace, but you don’t feel like you can voice your concerns? The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA) have developed a landmark national state-based pharmacy workplace survey. Your responses will provide the NPA with aggregated data needed to learn how state laws and regulations, along with pharmacy policies and procedures, may be adding stressors to the work life of pharmacy personnel that may lead to patient safety issues.

We’ve heard that pharmacists are reluctant to discuss workplace issues for fear of retaliation from their employers. This survey is 100% anonymous. The NPA will not have access to your responses. Your individual survey response will be included in a nationwide database that will be held centrally and confidentially. Just 10 minutes of your time is all it takes to complete the Pharmacy Workplace Survey. Don’t just wish you were heard - actually be heard!


 

Amy HolmanThe NPA Welcomes New Project Coordinator, Amy Holman
I am excited for this new journey with the NPA and I look forward to getting out and meeting everyone involved in the Nebraska MEDS Drug Disposal and Narcan programs. At my previous job, I interacted with many clients throughout the country. I love being able to chat with people and figure out how I can help them out. When I'm not working you can find me cutting hair, crafting, hanging out with family and friends, and binge-watching tv with my partner, Matt, and our two cats. Amy can be reached at (402) 420-1500 or amy.holman@npharm.org.
