FBMJ’s Rx Attorney, Sveska, Featured Speaker at MPA Five-Live Event

FBMJ pharmacist attorney, Kim Sveska, presented at the Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) / Michigan Society of Pharmacy Technicians’ Five-Live Continuing Education Event on September 16, 2017 in Flint, MI. Sveska presented a pharmacy law update which included the ever-increasing number of pharmacy audits that the typical community pharmacy faces, the new Michigan medical marijuana laws, and upgrades to the Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS). In addition, he discussed the Standing Order for Naloxone (Narcan) which allows pharmacists to dispense Narcan, the fast-acting medication intended to reverse the effects of an opioid-related drug overdose without an official prescription, and licensure complaints against prescribers and dispensers that overprescribe or over-dispense opioids.
