  • Overview

    Local pharmacy-based initiatives are providing us and our patients with safer and more environmentally-friendly ways to dispose of unused or outdated medications. How have these programs been received by consumers and the medical community at large? Are these programs more broadly applicable on the state and federal level? Shirley Reitz, PharmD, associate director of pharmacy clinical services for the Group Health Cooperative, a consumer-governed, non-profit healthcare system based in Seattle, details Group Health's program that allows patients and practitioners to bring back expired and unwanted drugs for secure disposal. Dr. Charles Turck hosts.
