The main goal of this required 2 hours course for licensed Florida pharmacists (RPh) is to discuss procedures to ensure the appropriate handling and documentation of prescriptions for controlled substances. Included are methods the pharmacist may use to verify patient ID, the validity of the prescription, the scope of practice of the prescriber, as well as methods to record the quantity of drug dispensed, emphasizing proper documentation. Proper decision making is paramount to ensuring that patients receive their prescribed medications.
