Pharmaceutical malpractice is an often overlooked area of law, but one that deserves focus and examination. According to statistics, there were four billion - and counting - prescriptions filled at pharmacies in the United States last year. With the omnipresent direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising and the overprescribing of medications, these numbers should only increase. And, with the increase in the dispensing of medication, there will unfortunately be an increase in the attendant malpractice. This course, led by attorney Jason T. Brown, is a discussion of this growing area of law, complete with practice tips and foundational theory.
I. Understand history of pharmacists
II. Distinguish the functions of the pharmacist versus the prescriber
III. Recognize the different types of pharmaceutical negligence
IV. Select a case and understand the expense of litigation
V. Apply practical litigation tips
VI. Identify trends in pharmaceutical litigation
