  • Overview

    This activity is an introduction to over-the-counter drug therapy designed to make the pharmacist understand the scope and cost savings of OTC medications. A brief history of the laws that govern OTC products as well as approaches to helping patients make informed self-care choices. Although the behind the counter concept does exist, and is currently underutilized participants will see the need for expansion for that category. Join "Professor Pete" Kreckel a pharmacist with nearly four decades of community pharmacy experience as he lays the groundwork for a fifteen-unit course that when completed will make the pharmacist a self-care expert.
