The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA's) Final Rule for the Disposal of Controlled Substances, which implements the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, was recently made available online (click here). The Act, in an effort to curtail the prescription drug abuse epidemic, authorized DEA to develop and implement regulations that outline methods to transfer unused or unwanted pharmaceutical controlled substances to authorized collectors for the purpose of disposal.  The Act also permits long-term-care facilities to do the same on behalf of residents or former residents of their facilities. The Final Rule took effect on October 9 and can be viewed here.

Press Release Link: ASHP Applauds Introduction of Bill That Recognizes Pharmacists as Providers

The Massachusetts Society of Health-System Pharmacists (MSHP) was founded in 1945 to foster the professional growth of hospital pharmacy in Massachusetts. In the 1960’s, MSHP became affiliated with the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists (ASHP) now known as the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists.

 In 1997, we changed our name and developed a new mission statement reflecting pharmacy as a part of an integrated health-system. Today, MSHP represents over 1,900 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians working in organized health-systems throughout the Commonwealth. For over fifty years, the members of MSHP have worked together in the achievement of common professional goals.

These goals include the following: advancement of rational drug therapy in organized healthcare settings through the provision of pharmaceutical care; advancement and encouragement of professional excellence by providing leadership, direction, education and communication among its members practicing in healthcare systems; fostering of closer relationships between health-system pharmacy, other pharmaceutical disciplines and health care providers.
