As part of its 2021 consumer awareness campaign, NABP has created a patient education kit for boards of pharmacy and other health care organizations and providers to share important online medication safety information with patients in their state. The education kit includes social media posts and images, a public service announcement video, a newsletter article, and a PowerPoint presentation that can be shared through various social channels to support NABP’s #BuySafely initiative.
In May 2021, NABP launched its 2021 consumer awareness campaign to inform consumers about the dangers of buying medicine from unlicensed pharmacies online and through social media accounts. NABP’s awareness campaign sends patients to NABP’s consumer website, which provides patients with a tool to check if a site is “Verified” or “Not Recommended,” as well as educates on the issue.
