Drug diversion prevention and detection: using a comprehensive risk and internal audit approach

Join us for breakfast and an interactive discussion on drug diversion, followed by networking.

Drug diversion is a national crisis affecting public health and social and economic welfare. Drug diversion activities not only cause potential harm to patients and healthcare professionals, but also to the organizations that employ them – causing healthcare organizations to face legal, financial, operational and reputational risks and regulatory fines. Now consider that about 15% of all healthcare workers will misuse drugs or alcohol at some point in their career.  To effectively address these issues and mitigate risks, healthcare organizations must have a comprehensive interdisciplinary drug diversion management program that includes rigorous controls, routine audits and monitoring.
