Podcast 2 of 2: Drug Shortages and Gray Market

JCB was asked to take part in a podcast recording regarding drug shortages and the gray market.  You can listen to the podcast here.

In summary, the podcast covers the following topics:

  • Drug shortages and why they are more common now than ever before
  • Drugs that are the most problematic to obtain
  • Why chemotherapy drugs are hard to find and the resulting consequences of not having them available
  • What is the gray market and how has it evolved
  • What is “pedigree” in the context of drugs
  • Recommendations for handling drug shortages and evaluating alternative sources of drugs

The drug shortage issues may be somewhat relieved in 2013. However, there will still be significant shortages of life-saving and critical medications.  Stay in contact with JCB and keep calling us for information on drug shortages you are facing in your facilities.
