Dietary Supplement Regulation: Recognizing Fact From Fiction
Home Study Webinar
Free Activity – available through February 3, 2022.
Caution: This webinar may support healthy levels of skepticism.
While many in the dietary supplement industry comply fully with federal law, some bad actors sell products that are adulterated and/or misbranded in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. This webinar focuses on this subset of dietary supplements, particularly supplements tainted with undeclared active pharmaceutical ingredients; supplements that contain declared adulterants, such as amphetamine derivatives, steroids, or investigational new drugs; and supplements impermissibly marketed with claims to treat diseases.
Presenters will cover the regulatory framework governing these products; explain why these products continue to be readily available to patients; and provide pharmacists and pharmacy technicians with the information they need to protect the public from harm. This home study webinar is a recording of the live activity that was held on January 20, 2021.
The complimentary webinar is eligible for Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)-accredited continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit. More details regarding the presentations, CPE activity credits, and browser requirements can be found in the CPE Activity Information Guide.
